I didn't know, until today (some 33 years after I first heard it) that Mike Campbell wrote the music. Kahn borrowed the phrase from a Dylan Thomas poem, "I See the Boys of Summer," which begins, "I see the boys of summer in their ruin...."

The phrase "the boys of summer" did not first come from Roger Kahn's book about the Brooklyn Dodgers.
I believe this song is Don Henley's tribute to his broken relationship with Frey, with a message of hope that it can be repaired (I'm gonna get you back) and he can be successful on his own (gonna show you what I'm made of).
When he says "those days are gone forever, I should just let them go" he is talking about the Eagle's best years.
