Don McLean


American Pie

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

/ GD Em / Am7 C Em D / GD Em / Am7 C / Em Am D /

But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

/ Em Am / / CG Am / C D /

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

/ GD Em / Am7 C / GD Em / C D7 G (C G) /

So, {Refrain}
