A long, long time ago, I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile.
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,
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,
Them good ole’ 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?
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.

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, 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 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 singin’…
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, singin’
This’ll be the day that I die
