American Pie

"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?

Well I know you're in love with him 'Cause I saw you dancing in the gym

You both kicked off your shoes

Man, I dig those rhythm 'n' blues

I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck With a pink carnation and a pickup truck

But I knew that I was out of luck The day the music died I started singing... "
