American Pie

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 be happy for a while
  But February made me shiver
  With every paper I'd deliver
  Bad news on the doorstep
  I couldn't take one more step
  I can't remember if I cried
  When I read about his widowed bride
  But something touched me deep inside
  The day the music died
  So Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
  This'll be the day that I die
  Did you write the Book of Love
  And do you have faith in God above
  If the Bible tells you so
  Do you believe in rock 'n 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 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 pickup truck
  But I knew I was out of luck
  The day the music died
  I started singin'
  Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
  This'll be the day that I die
  Now for ten years we've been on our own
  And moss grows fat on a rollin' stone
  But that's not how it used to be
  When the jester sang for the King and Queen
  In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
  And a voice that came from you and me
  Oh and while the King was looking down
  The jester stole his thorny crown
  The courtroom was adjourned
  No verdict was returned
  And while Lennon read a book of Marx
  The quartet practiced in the park
  And we sang dirges in the dark
  The day the music died
  We were singing
  Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
  This'll be the day that I die
  Helter Skelter in a summer swelter
  The Byrds flew off with a fallout shelter
  Eight miles high and falling fast
  It landed foul out on the grass
  The players tried for a forward pass
  With the jester on the sidelines in a cast
  Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
  While the Sergeants played a marching tune
  We all got up to dance
  Oh but we never got the chance
  'Cause the players tried to take the field
  The marching band refused to yield
  Do you recall what was revealed
  The day the music died
  We started singing
  Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
  This'll be the day that I die
  Oh and there we were all in one place
  A generation Lost in Space
  With no time left to start again
  So come on Jack be nimble Jack be quick
  Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
  'Cause fire is the Devil's only friend
  Oh and as I watched him on the stage
  My hands were clenched in fists of rage
  No angel born in hell
  Could break that Satan's spell
  And as the flames climbed high into the night
  To light the sacrifical rite
  I saw Satan laughing with delight
  The day the music died
  He was singing
  Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' 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
  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
  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 were singing
  Bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  And them good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
  This'll be the day that I die
  They were singing bye-bye Miss American Pie
  Drove my chevy to the levee
  But the levee was dry
  Them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
  Singin' this'll be the day that I die
