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 bye-bye, miss american pie.
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and 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?
Do you believe in rock ’n 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’,
“bye-bye, miss american pie.”
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
And singin’, “this’ll be the day that I die.
“this’ll be the day that I die.”

Now for ten years we’ve been on our own
And moss grows fat on a rollin’ 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 lennon read a book of marx,
The 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 old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
And singin’, “this’ll be the day that I die.
“this’ll be the day that I die.”

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 the 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 singing,
“bye-bye, miss american pie.”
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
And singin’, “this’ll be the day that I die.
“this’ll be the day that I die.”

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.

Oh, 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 singing,
“bye-bye, miss american pie.”
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
And 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.

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,
“bye-bye, miss american pie.”
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this’ll be the day that I die.
“this’ll be the day that I die.”

They were singing,
“bye-bye, miss american pie.”
Drove my chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye
Singin’, “this’ll be the day that I die.”

  1. Great song no matter how many dislike it. Everybody has different tastes in music that's the way it should be. Just find it hard to believe 12000 dislikes Guess I'm an old fart. Go an fire up a dube an listen to my old vinyls yea.

  2. Okay I'm going try to NOT BE Insensitive about it… But the music Don McLean claims has "died," it didn't. Because it still living today. Now the singers and songwriters that wrote it in those days, are long gone and have passed away unfortunately and which I do admit it is sad and devastating that we've lost them. And it's not just from that era or any other, we still see it continuing in this one, too. Now the Music in general, It's not dead it's Immortalized. Music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and the first decade of 2000 they wrote masterpieces. Compared to what you hear after 2010 they need some SERIOUS work on their songs. Now I know most and some of you out there regardless of what generation you grew up in are going label the pieces of music as "Noise", "Garbage", "Masterpiece", or whatever is going to come to your mind, that's just how it is. I can't control let alone change peoples opinion about what they like and what they don't like about music. Once they hear it, they are going place their comment or opinion about, and that's it. Case closed.

  3. For those of us who actually grew up in the 50's 60's and 70's this song is the epitome of what our culture was like, it resonates on a level that only those who lived it can understand. It represents the history we lived in song.

  4. September 6th, 2017….My husband was singing this song this morning. I remembered only the chorus. He said Don McLean was a prophet, and this song is coming to fruition today. Hurricane Katrina, Harvey, all the ? fires burning now, the princess died: Princess Diana, Trump is speaking while we clench our fists, religion realized as false, the king, queen, jesters all on the take: Congress….Bye Bye Miss American Pie: the American dream is gone….Amazing! Hell is here on Earth, right now. Very sad, but true! ✌?????

    Did I send you an original "I SMASHED A COP" email before having James Comey fired on May 9th 2017? If so your mobile device resale value has gone up substantially. Due to the fact that it is a priceless biblical relic. I made the pope retire. Ask Google: https://www.google.com/search?q=WHO+MADE+THE+POPE+RETIRE%3F Did you see the twelve "I SMASHED A COP" tweets I sent cops before having FBI Director James Comey fired from Maricopa County Superior Court on May 9th?

    This video was recorded on May 9th 2017 right before my making a scene at the metal detectors and again in the courtroom on record repeatedly stating what the President then quoted specifically just minutes later in the firing of the FBI Director James Comey. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22It+is+essential+that+we+find+new+leadership+for+the+F.B.I.%22 Next time just ask Google: WHO MADE THE POPE RETIRE?

  6. The song is a tribute to ALL the famous and talented singers who were murdered by the government. "Bye bye Amercian Pie" stands for "goodbye freedom" because the USA is not a democrate country as all the talented singers including Janis Joplin were murdered. Even today talented singers being killed; Michael Jackson, George Michael, Prince and before those talented singers; Tupac en Biggie were murdered too. So again American Pie stands for Statue of "LIBERTY". ? Btw not only popstars but also President Kennedy & Marilyn Monroe etc…

  7. Man, most of these comments seem to feel superior about having a "better taste in music." I like having a mix, but there are music I won't listen to, like any rap and pop nowadays and dubstep.
