no use iii complainin' when you got a job to do. Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in, and that's when I met you. Standin' on your mama's porch, you told me that you'd wait forever. Oh, and when you hel.d my hand, I knew that it was now or never. Those were the best days of my life.

And now the times are changin'; look at everything that's come and gone. Sometimes when I pllay that old six-string I think about you; wonder what went wrong. Stand in , on your mama's porch, you told me it'd last forever. Oh, and when you held my hand, I knew that it was now or never. Those were the best days of my life.
