American Pie

Don Mclean

A
G
long,
D
long
Em7
time ago
Am
I can still re
C
member how that
Em
music used to make me
D
smile
And
G
I knew
D
if I had
Em7
my chance
That
Am
I could make those
C
people dance
And
Em
maybe they'd be
C
happy for a
D
while
Em
But February
Am
made me shiver
Em
With every paper
Am
I'd deliver
C
Bad news
G
on the
Am
doorstep
I
C
couldn't take o
D
ne more step
I
G
can't re
D
member if I
Em
cried
When
Am7
I read about his
D
widowed bride
But
G
something
D
touched me
Em
deep inside
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died
C
 
G
So
G
bye,
C
bye, Miss A
G
merican
D
Pie
Drove my
G
Chevy to the
C
levee but the
G
levee was
D
dry
And them
G
good old 
C
boys were drinking
G
whiskey and 
D
rye
Singin'
Em
this'll be the day that I
A7
die
Em
This'll be the day that I
D7
die
G
Did you write the
Am
book of love
And do
C
you have faith in
Am
God above
Em
If the Bible
D
tells you so?
Now do
G
you be
D
lieve in
Em
rock and roll?
Can
Am7
music save your
C
mortal soul?
And
Em
can you teach me
A7
how to dance
D
real slow?
Well, I
Em
know that you're in
D
love with him
'Cause I
Em
saw you dancin'
D
in the gym
You
C
both kicked
G
off your
A7
shoes
Man, I
C
dig those rhythm and
D7
blues
I was a
G
lonely
D
teenage
Em
broncin' buck
With a
Am
pink carnation and a
C
pickup truck
But
G
I knew
D
I was
Em
out of luck
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died
C
 
G
G
I started singing
G
Bye,
C
bye, Miss A
G
merican
D
Pie
Drove my
G
Chevy to the
C
levee but the
G
levee was
D
dry
And them
G
good old 
C
boys were drinking
G
whiskey and 
D
rye
Singin'
Em
this'll be the day that I
A7
die
Em
This'll be the day that I
D7
die
G
Now for ten years we've been
Am
on our own
And
C
moss grows fat on a
Am
rollin' stone
Em
But that's not how it
D
used to be
When the
G
jester
D
sang for the
Em
king and queen
In a
Am7
coat he borrowed
C
from James Dean
And a
Em
voice that
A7
came from
D
you and me
Oh, and
Em
while the king was
D
looking down
The
Em
jester stole his
D
thorny crown
The
C
courtroom
G
was ad
A7
journed
C
No verdict was re
D7
turned
And while
G
Lennon
D
read a
Em
book of Marx
The
Am
quartet practiced
C
in the park
And
G
we sang
D
dirges
Em
in the dark
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died
C
 
G
G
We were singing
G
Bye,
C
bye, Miss A
G
merican
D
Pie
Drove my
G
Chevy to the
C
levee but the
G
levee was
D
dry
And them
G
good old 
C
boys were drinking
G
whiskey and 
D
rye
Singin'
Em
this'll be the day that I
A7
die
Em
This'll be the day that I
D7
die
G
Helter skelter in a
Am
summer swelter
The
C
birds flew off with a
Am
fallout shelter
Em
Eight miles high and
D
falling fast
It
G
landed
D
foul
Em
on the grass
The
Am7
players tried
C
for a forward pass
With the
Em
jester
A7
on the sidelines
D
in a cast
Now the
Em
half-time air was
D
sweet perfume
While the
Em
sergeants played a
D
marching tune
C
We all
G
got up to
A7
dance
Oh, but we
C
never got the
D7
chance!
`Cause the
G
players
D
tried to
Em
take the field
The
Am
marching band re
C
fused to yield
G
Do you rec
D
all, what
Em
was revealed
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died?
C
 
G
G
We started singing
G
Bye,

Em
This'll be the day that I
D7
die
G
Oh, and there we were all
Am
in one place
A
C
generation
Am
lost in space
Em
With no time left to
D
start again
So come on:
G
Jack be nimble,
Em
Jack be quick
Jack
Am7
Flash sat on a
C
candlestick
´Cause
Em
fire is the
A7
devil's only
D
friend
Oh, and
Em
as I watched him
D
on the stage
My
Em
hands were clenched in
D
fists of rage
C
No angel
G
born in
A7
hell
Could
C
break that Satan's
D7
spell
And as the
G
flames climbed
D
high in
Em
to the night
To
Am
light the sacr
C
ificial rite
I saw
G
Satan
D
laughing
Em
with delight
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died

Em
This'll be the day that I
D7

I
G
met a girl, who sang the
Am
blues
And I
C
asked her for some
Am
happy news
But
Em
she just smiled and turned
D
away
I
G
went down
D
to the s
Em
acred store
Where, I'd
Am
heard the music
C
years before
But the
Em
man there said, the
A7
music wouldn't
D
play
And
Em
in the streets the
Am
children screamed
The
Em
lovers cried, and the
Am
poets dreamed
C
But not a
G
word was
A7
spoken
The
C
church bells all were
D7
broken
And the
G
three men,
D
I adm
Em
ire most
The
Am
father,
C
son and the
D7
holy ghost
They
G
caught the
D
last train
Em
for the coast
The
C
day the
D7
music
G
died
C
 
G

Píseň pochází se stejnojmenného alba z roku 1971 a pojednává o "dni, kdy zemřela hudba", kdy při letecké havárii zemřeli průkopníci Rock n' Rollu Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens a The Big Bopper. Text byl mnohokrát analyzován a spekulovalo se, co jednotlivé verše vyjadřují, avšak to McLean nikdy neprozradil.
