Intro:      A [G]long, [D]long [Em7]time ago, [Am]I can still remem- [C]ber how that

         [Em]music used to make me [D]smile [G]And I [D]knew if I [Em7]had my chance,

         [Am]That I could make those [C]people dance and [Em]maybe they'd be [C]happy for a [D]while

         [Em]But February made [Am]me shiver, [Em]with every paper [Am]I'd deliver

         [C]Bad news [G]on the [Am]doorstep, I [C]couldn't take one more step[D]

         I [G]can't remem-[D]ber if I [Em]cried when I [Am7]read about his [D]widowed bride

         But, [G]something [D]touched me [Em]deep inside [C]The day the [D7]music [G]died [C][G]

 

  C:     So [G]bye, [C]bye Miss A-[G]merican [D]Pie, Drove my [G]Chevy to the [C]levy but the [G]levy was [D]dry

         And them [G]good old [C]boys were drinkin' [G]whiskey and [D]rye

         Singin' [Em]this will be the day that I [A7]die, [Em]this will be the day that I [D7]die

 

  V1:   [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 [C]your mortal soul and [Em]can you teach me [A7]how to dance real [D]slow?

         Well I [Em]know that you're in [D]love with him  'cuz 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] I started singin'

C:

V2:   [G]Now for ten years we've been [Am]on our own, And [C]moss grows fat on a [Am] rolling stone, but

         [Em] That's not how it [D]used to be.  [G]When the jester [D]sang for the [Em]king and queen in a

         [Am]coat he borrowed [C]from James Dean in a [Em]voice that [A7]came from you and [D]me

         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 [G]while Lenin [D]read a [Em]book on Marx, the [Am]quartet prac-[C]ticed in the park

         And [G]we sang [D]dirges [Em]in the dark the [C]day the [D7]music [G]died, we were singin'

C:

V3:   [G]Helter skelter [Am]in a summer swelter, The [C]birds flew off with a [Am]fallout shelter,

         [Em]eight miles high and [D]fallin' fa-a-a-a-ast.  [G]It lan-[D]ded foul [Em]on the grass

         The [Am]players tried for a [C]forward pass, with the [Em]jester on the [A7]sidelines in a [D]cast

         Now the [Em]halftime air was [D]sweet perfume, while [Em]the sergeants played a [D]marching tune

         [C]We all got [G]up to [A7]dance, oh, but we [C]never got the [D]chance

         'Cuz the [G]players [D]tried to [Em]take the field, the [Am]marching band refused to [C]yield

         [G]Do you re-[D]call what [Em]was revealed the [C]day the [D7]music [G]died, [C][G]we started singin'

C:

V4:   Oh, [G]and there we were all [Am]in one place, A [C]generation [Am]lost in space, with

         [Em]No time left to [D]start again.  So come on [G]Jack be [D]nimble, [Em]Jack be quick,

         [Am]Jack Flash sat on a [C]candle stick, 'cuz [Em]fire is the [A7]devil's only [D]friend

         Oh, [Em]and 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 [D]spell

         And as the [G]flames climbed [D]high in-[Em]to the night to [Am]light the sacrifi-[C]cial rite

         I saw [G]Satan [D]laughing [Em]with delight the [C]day the [D7]music [G]died, [C][G]he was singin'

C:

V5:  [G]I met a [D]girl who [Em]sang the blues, And [Am]I asked her for some [C]happy news,

         [Em]but she just smiled and [D]turned away.  [G]I went [D]down to the [Em]sacred store

         Where [Am]I'd 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, [Em]the lovers cried and the [Am]poets dreamed

         [G]But not a [D]word was [Am]spoken, the [C]church bells all were [D]broken

         And the [G]three men [D]I ad-[Em]mire most, the [C]Father, Son, and the [D]Holy Ghost

         [G]They caught the [D]last train [Em]for the coast the [C]day the [D7]music [G]died, And they were singin'

C:     x2

O:       

Singin' [C]this will be the [D7]day that I [G]die[C][G].
