A long long time ago 
I can still remember 
How that music used to make me smile 
And i knew that if i had one chance 
I could make those people dance 
And maybe they'd be happy for awhile 

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 it teach me how to dance real slow 
Well i know that your in love with him 
Cause i saw you dancing in the gym 
You both kicked off your shoes 
And i did Gods rhythm and blues 
I was a lonely teenage brock of luck 
With a great carnation and a pick up truck 
But i knew that i was out of luck 
The day the music died 
I started singing 

[Chorus] 
Bye bye Miss American Pie 
Drove my chevy to the levy 
But the levy was dry 
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye 
singing 
This will be the day that I die 
This will 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 
Well i went down to the sachet store 
Where i 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 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 
I started singing 

Bye bye Miss American Pie 
Drove my chevy to the levy 
But the levy was dry 
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye 
singing 
This will be the day that I die 
This will be the day that I die 

Bye bye Miss American Pie 
Drove my chevy to the levy 
But the levy was dry 
And good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye 
singing 
This will be the day that I die 
This will be the day that I die 

we started singing 
we started singing 
we started singing 
we started singing
