   G    D    Em       Am            C
A long long time ago I can still remember
Em D
how That music used to make me smile
G D Em
And I knew if I had my chance
Am C
That I could make those people dance
Em C D
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
Em Am Em Am
But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver
C G Am C D
Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step
G D Em Am D
I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride
G D Em C D7 G C D
But something touched me deep inside The day the music died

G C G D
So Bye, bye Miss American Pie
G C G D
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
G C G D
Them good old boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
Em A7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7
This'll be the day that I die

G Am
Did you write the book of love
C Am
And do you have faith in God above
Em D G D Em
If the Bible tells you so? Now do you believe in rock and roll?
Am C
Can music save your mortal soul?
Em A7 D7
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?
Em Am
Well, I know that you're in love with him
Em Am
Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
C G A7
You both kicked off your shoes
C D7
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
G D Em
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck
Am C
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
G D Em C D7 G C G
But I knew I was out of luck The day the music died
D7
I started singin'

[Chorus]

G D Em
I met a girl who sang the blues
Am C
And I asked her for some happy news
Em D
But she just smiled and turned away
G D Em
I went down to the sacred store
Am C
Where I'd heard the music years before
Em C D
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
Em Am
And in the streets the children screamed
Em Am
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed
C G Am C D
But not a word was spoken The church bells all were broken
G D Em
And the three men I admire most
Am D
the Father Son and the Holy Ghost
G D Em
They caught the last train for the coast
C D7 G C G
The day the music died
D7
And they were singing

Chorus:Repeat x2 y final con....
C D7 G
singing this’ll be the day that I die
