[A]Had a band and we tried real hard
[D]Jimmy quit, Jodie got married
[A]Shoulda known we'd never get far


[Bm]When I [A]look back now
[D]The summer seemed to [G]last forever
[Bm]And if I [A]had the choice
[D]Yeah, I'd always [G]want to be there
[Bm]Those were the [A]↓ best days of my [D]life [D]   [A]   [A]


[D]Ain't no use in complaining
[A]When you got a job to do
[D]Spend my nights down at the drive-in
[A]And that's when I met you, yeah


[Bm]Standing on your [A]mama's porch
[D]You told me that you'd [G]wait forever
[Bm]Oh, and when you [A]held my hand
[D]I knew that it was [G]now or never
[Bm]Those were the [A]↓ best days of my [D]life [D]oh [A]yeah

[D]I knew that it was [G]now or never
[Bm]Those were the [A]↓ best days of my [D]life [D]oh [A]yeah
