Lyrics:

A long long time ago,
I can still remember how that music used to
make me smile
And I knew that if I had my chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Now do you believe in Rock ‘n’ Roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow Well, I know that you’re in love with him
‘Cos I saw you dancin’ in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck
With a pink carnation and a pick-up truck
But I knew that I was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singing Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing: “This’ll be the day that I die”
“This’ll be the day that I die” I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
When I went down to the sacred store
Where I’d heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn’t play Well now, in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died We started singin’ Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die Bye, bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die We started singin’
We started singin’
We started singin’
We started singin’
