      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
      
      [Chorus]
      Bye, bye Miss American Pie
      Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee 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
      
      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 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'
      
      [Chorus]
      
      Now, for ten years we've been on our own
      And moss grows fat on a rolling 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 Lenin read a book on Marx
      The quartet practiced in the park
      And we sang dirges in the dark
      The day the music died
      We were singin'
      
      [Chorus]
      
      Helter skelter in a summer swelter
      The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
      Eight miles high and falling fast
      It landed foul 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 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 singin'
      
      [Chorus]
      
      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
      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 sacrificial rite
      I saw Satan laughing with delight
      The day the music died
      He was singin'
      
      [Chorus]
      
      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
      
      [Chorus:Repeat x2
