Madonna - American Pie



Category: Pop | Familiar Songs
  G     D    Em      
A long, long time ago
Am            C     
I can still remember
         Em            D            
How that music used to make me smile
       G   D    Em                
And I knew if I had my chance that
Am                 C           
I could make those people dance
    Em              C           D     
and maybe they'd by happy for a while.

Bridge: x2


G                 Am          
Did you write the book of love
       C                 Am         Em
and do you have faith in God above?   
Em           D           
If the Bible tells you so
       G     Em                     
Now do you believe in rock and roll?
    Am              C           
Can music save your mortal soul?
    Em               A7            D7        
and can you teach me how to dance  real slow?
       Em                  Am           
Well I know that you're in love with him
         Em                Am         
'cause I   saw you dancing in the gym,
    C           G        Am    
You both kicked off your shoes,
      C                     D7   
Man I dig those rhythm and blues!
        G      D       Em            
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck,
       Am                   C             
with a pink carnation and a pick-up truck.
     G     D     Em                C   
But I knew I was out of luck   the day,
    D7    G    C  G           D7         
the music died.     I started singing....

Chorus:

   G   C          G       D   
So bye-bye, Miss American Pie.
         G            C            
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the
G          D        G        C   
levee was dry, them good ole boys
              G           D           
were drinkin' whiskey and Rye, singing
Em                        A7  
this'll be the day that I die,
Em                        D7  
This'll be the day that I die.

   G     D       Em                
I met a girl who sang the blues so 
   Am                  C       
I asked her for some happy news
    Em                              D  
But she just smiled    and turned away.
  G     D          Em          
I went down to the sacred store
         Am              C           
Where I heard the music years before.
        Em            
But the man there said
    C              D              
the music wouldn't play.       And
Em                  Am              
in the streets the children screamed
    Em                   D             
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed.
     C     G        Am   
But not a word was spoken
      C                          D    
The church   bells  all  were  broken.
          G       D   Em        
And the three men I admire most:
     Am7                 C        
The father, Son and the Holy Ghost
      G          D         Em                 C 
They caught the last train for the coast the day
    D7     G   C  G               D7     
The music died.     And they were singing

Repeat Chorus
