Gli accordi di American Pie di Don McLean per chitarra.
Il brano fa espresso riferimento al “giorno in cui la musica morì”, in inglese “The Day the Music Died”: la locuzione convenzionale con cui viene ricordato il disastro aereo accaduto a Clear Lake, nell’Iowa (Stati Uniti) il 3 febbraio 1959, in cui persero la vita Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens e J.P. Richardson, mentre si recavano a Fargo per un concerto.
A partire da questo evento, il testo sembra sviluppare una sorta di storia del rock and roll, fatta di allusioni di non facile interpretazione. Il testo è estremamente oscuro e moltissimi sono stati i tentativi di darne interpretazioni di tipo sociale, politico, religioso, musicologico e così via. McLean non ha mai acconsentito a chiarirne esattamente il significato.
Il brano, della durata di 8 minuti e mezzo, fu inciso nel 1971 e pubblicato lo stesso anno sull’album omonimo di McLean.
Negli Stati Uniti raggiunse nel 1972 la prima posizione nelle classifiche Billboard Hot 100 per quattro settimane e Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks.
In Australia è arrivata prima per cinque settimane.
American Pie viene considerato una pietra miliare della musica leggera americana. Diverse associazioni lo hanno indicato come uno dei cinque brani musicali più importanti del XX secolo.

  SOL     RE    MIm7
A long, long time ago, 

LAm            DO                MIm                   RE
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile

    SOL      RE    MIm7
And I know if I had my chance,

     LAm                 DO                MIm

DO        SOL      LAm          DO                      RE
Bad news on the doorstep, I couldn't take one more step
