American Pie  Madonna

[G]A long[D], lon[Em7]g time ago,
[Am]I can still re[C]member how that m[Em]usic used to make me [D]smile
And [G]I know that [D]if I [Em7]had my chance,
That [Am]I could make those [C]people dance and [Em]maybe they'd be [C]happy for a [D]while
[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?
[G]Now do you [D]believe in [Em]rock and roll
Am7* C Em A7 D
Think that music save your mortal soul if you will teach me how to dance real 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]die[C]d, [G]I started singin'
[G]bye, [C]bye Miss [G]American [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
I [G]met a [D]girl who [Em]sang the blues
And I [Am]asked her for some [C]happy news, but [Em]she just smiled and turned a[D]way
Then I [G]went down [D]to the [Em]sacred store
[(G)] [(Am)] [(G)] [(C)] [(Em)] 
Where I'd [Am]heard the music [C]years before, but the [Em]man there said the [C]music
wouldn't [D]play
Well now [Em]in the streets the [Am]children screamed, the [Em]lovers cry and the [Am]poets dream
But [C]not a [G]word was [Am]spoken, the [C]church bells all were [D]broken
And the [G]three men [D]I ad[Em]mire most, the [Am7]Father, [C]Son, and the [D7]Holy Ghost
[G]They caught the [D]last train [Em]for the coast the [Am7]day the [D7]music [G]died,
[D7]We started singin'
(Chorus x2)
[D7]We started singin'
[D7]We started singin'
[D7]We started singin'
[D7]We started singin'
