American Pie

Madonna

  As   Es   Fm7	      Bmi	     C#		
A long long time ago I can still remember
	 Fmi			Es	   As	 Es	   Fm7
how that music used to make me smile And I knew if I had my chance
     Bmi		 C#		  Fmi		    C#		
that I could make those people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a 
Es    Fmi
while.

	     Bm		     Fmi	       Bmi
But February made me shiver With every paper I'd deliver
C#	As-H   Bmi	     C#		      Es
Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step
  As	 Es	      Fmi	    Bm7		    Es 
I can't remember if I cried When I read about his widowed bride
    As	     Es				  C#	  Es7   As   C#-As As	
But something touched me deep inside The day the Music Died      

So
{soc}
As  C#	     As	      Es	   As		 C#	       As  	 Es
bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my chevy to the levy But the levy was
dry
	 As	  C#		     As		  Es
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
	Fmi			   B7  Fmi			   Es7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die this'll be the day that I die.
{eoc}
As		  Bmi			C#		   Bmi
Did you write the book of love And do you have faith in God above?
Fmi	     Es			As     Es	Fmi 
If the Bible tells you so.  Do you believe in Rock 'n Roll?
   Bm7		     C#		      Fmi		B7	      Es		
Can music save your mortal soul? And can you teach me how to dance
real slow?

	Fmi		     Es			    Fmi	      Es
Well, I know that you're in love with him 'cause I saw you dancin' in
the gym
    C#		As-H	 B7		C#		  Es7 
You both kicked off your shoes Man, I dig those rythmny blues
	As      Es	Fmi		     Bmi		    C#
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck With a pink carnation and a
pickup truck.
    As	  Es    Fmi		  C#	  Es7   As  C#  
But I knew I was out of luck The day the music died

I started singin'
{c: chorus}

As			     Bmi	      C#			  Bmi
Now for ten years we've been on our own And moss grows fat on a
rollin' stone
Fmi		       Es		   As	  Es		Fmi 
But that's not how it used to be When the jester sang for the King
and Queen
     Bm7	       C#		     Fm	  B7	    Es 
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean And a voice that came from you
and me

	Fmi		    Es		     Fmi		Es	  
Oh, and while the King was looking down The jester stole his thorny
crown
    C#	     As-H  B7		C#	       Es7  	
The courtroom was adjourned No verdict was returned
	  As	 Es	Fmi		   Bmi		        C#
And while Lennon read a book of Marx The court kept practice in the
park
    As	   Es	   Fmi		    C#	    Es7	  As	C#  
And we sang dirges in the dark The day the Music Died.

We were singing
{c:chorus}
As		    Bmi    Bmi         C#                    Bmi
Helter-Skelter in a summer swelter The Byrds flew off with a fallout
shelter
Fmi		      Es		      As    Es		Fmi 
Eight Miles High and falling fast It landed foul out on the grass
    Bm7		   C#				Fmi    B7		  Es
The players tried for a forward pass But the jester's on the
sidelines in a cast

	Fmi 		   Es			   Fmi			   
Now the half-time air was sweet perfume While the sargeants played a 
Es
marching tune
C#     As-H	 B7		C#	  Es7
We all got up to dance But we never got the chance
	   As	   Es	    Fmi	         Bmi		  C# 
'cause the players tried to take the field The marching band refused
to yield
As     Es     Fmi		     C#	     Es7   As	 C# As
Do you recall what was reveiled the day the Music Died?   

We stared singing
{c:chorus}

As			  Bmi		   C#	     Bmi
Oh, and there we were all in one place A generation Lost in Space
Fmi		      Es				As	
With no time left to start again So come on, Jack be nimble
Fmi		    Bm7		   C#			Fmi	    B7
Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 'cause fire is the
Devil's 
     Es
only friend

	Fmi		  Es		  Fmi			   Es
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage My hands were clenched in fists
of rage
C#	As      B7	     C#			 Es7 
No angel born in hell Could break that Satan's spell
	   As		  Es	 Fmi		   Bmi		   C# 
And as the flames climbed high into the night To light the sacrifical
rite
      As	   Es	     Fmi		C#	Es7    As   C# As 
I saw Satan laughing with delight The day the Music Died    

He was singing
{c:chorus}

  As		          Bmi		C#		    Bmi
I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news
    Fmi				Es	As			 Es
But she just smiled and turned away I went down to the sacred store
	  Fmi		   Bm7		         Fmi		     B7 
Where I'd heard the music years before But the man there said the
music 
	Es
woudn't play

	   Fmi			 Es	      Fmi			  
And in the streets the children screamed The lovers cried, and the
poets 
Es
Dreamed
C#	 As	   B7		C#		      Es7 
But not a word was spoken The Church bells all were broken
    As	 	 Es		Fmi	  Bmi	      C# 
And three men I admire most The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
     As		Es	   Fmi		       C#      Es7   As   C# As
They caught the last train for the coast The Day the Music Died.   

And they were singing
{c:chorus}

They were singing
