A long, long time ago
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance that
I could make those people dance
and maybe they'd by happy for a while.

Bridge: x2

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 and roll?
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
'cause I   saw you dancing 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 I was out of luck   the day,
the music died.     I started singing....

Chorus:

So bye-bye, Miss American Pie.
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the
levee was dry, them good ole 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 so 
I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled    and turned away.
I went down to the sacred store
Where I heard the music years before.
But the man there said
the music wouldn't play.       And
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 most:
The father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast the day
The music died.     And they weree singing

Repeat Chorus

Ending:
x2
