This actually the Don McLean version but who cares?

[Verse 1]
   G     D    Em7     Am            C
A long, long time ago I can still remember how
     Em                    D
that music used to make me smile 
    G      D    Em7
And I knew if I had my chance
     Am                 C
that I could make those people dance and 
Em              C           D 
maybe they'd be happy for a while.
    Em       Am                  Em          Am
But February made me shiver with every paper I'd deliver
C        G      Am         C                 D
Bad news on the doorstep I couldn't take one more step
  G       D      Em                 Am7            D
I can't remember if I cried, when I read about his widowed bride
    G         D          Em
But something touched me deep inside
    C       D7    G    C  G  D
The day the music died.

So...


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.


[Verse 2]
G                   Am                  C                 Am  
  Did you write the book of love and do you have faith in God above?
Em             D
  If the Bible tells you so.  
       G     D        Em
And do you believe in Rock 'n Roll?
        Am7             C
And can music save your mortal soul? 
    Em               A7                D
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?
       Em                  D                      Em              D
Well, I know that you're in love with him ‘cause I saw you dancing in the gym
    C           G        A7            C                 D7
You both kicked off your shoes. Man, I dig those rythmny blues.
        G      D       Em                   Am                   C
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck with a pink carnation and a pickup truck.
    G      D     Em
But I knew I was out of luck 
    C       D7    G    C   G           D   
The day the music died       I started singin'


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die. 


[Verse 3]
        G                       Am          C                   Am
Now for ten years we've been on our own and moss grows fat on a rollin' stone
    Em                D
But that's not how it used to be 
         G      D            Em
When the jester sang for the King and Queen
     Am7              C
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean 
      Em         A7        D
And a voice that came from you and me
    Em                 Am               Em               Am
And while the King was looking down, the jester stole his thorny crown
    C         G   A7            C           D7
The courtroom was adjourned, no verdict was returned
          G      D      Em                Am                         C
And while Lennon read a book of Marx, the court kept practice in the park
G      D           Em
And we sang dirges in the dark 
    C       D7    G      C    G            D
The day the music died.            We were singing


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die. 


[Verse 4]
        G        D        Em             C          Am
Oh, and there we were all in one place a generation lost in space
     Em              D           
With no time left to start again 
            G       D      Em            Am7                 C
So come on, Jack be nimble Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candlestick 
       Em          A7           D
‘cause fire is the Devil's only friend
        Em               D               Em                     D
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage
   C     G       A7         C                  D7
No angel born in hell could break that Satan's spell
           G              D      Em              Am             C
And as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrifical rite
      G     D        Em
I saw Satan laughing with delight 
    C       D7    G    C  G  D
The day the music died        and he was singing


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die. 


[Verse 5]
  G     D        Em                   C                  Am
I met a girl who sang the blues and I asked her for some happy news
    Em                  D
But she just smiled and turned away 
  G         D      Em                     Am7             C
I went down to the sacred store where I'd heard the music years before 
        Em                 A7            D
But the man there said the music woudn't play
    Em                 D                     Em                   D
And in the streets the children screamed the lovers cried and the poets dreamed
    C     G        A7         C                     D7
But not a word was spoken the church bells all were broken
    G         D   Em            Am                  C
And three men I admire most the father, son and the Holy Ghost
     G          D          Em
They caught the last train for the coast 
    C       D7    G     C  G  D
The day the music died.         And they were singing


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die. 

They were singing


[Chorus]
G    C          G       D
Bye, bye! Miss American Pie 
         G            C             G        D
Drove my chevy to the levy, but the levy was dry
         G        C                  G           D
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
        Em                        A7   Em                        D7    G
Singin' this'll be the day that I die, this'll be the day that I die.
