A long long time ago I can still remember How thhat music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance I could make those people dance And maybe they'd be happy for a while 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 'd 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 that I was out of luck The day the music died I started singing Bye, bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in 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 But 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 I started singing Bye, bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye Singin' this'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die I started singing Bye, bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye Singin' this'll be the day that I die This'll be the day that I die I started singing I started singing I started singing I started singing
