Chris De Burgh - American Pie Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • 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 walk 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,
  • Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye,
  • Singing this will be the day that I die,
  • This will 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?
  • And I know that you're in love with him,
  • 'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym,
  • You both kicked off your shoes,
  • And 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 singing...
  • Bye-bye, Miss American Pie,
  • Drove my Chevy to the levee,
  • But the levee was dry,
  • Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye,
  • Singing this will be the day that I die,
  • This will be the day that I die;
  • 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;
  • Ah but while the King was looking down,
  • The jester stole his thorny crown,
  • The courtroom was adjourned,
  • No verdict was returned,
  • And Lenin read from the book of Marx,
  • A 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,
  • Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye,
  • Singing this will be the day that I die,
  • This will be the day that I die;
  • Bye-bye, Miss American Pie,
  • Drove my Chevy to the levee,
  • But the levee was dry,
  • Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye,
  • Singing this will be the day that I die,
  • This will be the day that I die.
