(Carol’s note: In 1976, 5 years after this song’s release on USA’s Bicentennial, Father God had me choose it to complete an in-depth analysis high school project on it in the same year I wrote a 30 page research report on fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy in Biblical Cities — both of which launched my calling and anointing as a Watchman at 16 years of age, so I find this to be especially intriguing.

September 10, 2019 (Original article posted on August 27, 2011). I am republishing this archived article, with extensive updates, in light of the 2520 week marker which appears tomorrow (September 11).  Please first glance at my very recent, short article here which explains how profound is the timing.  Note– due to the importance of “9/11” being used as the standard abbreviation for The Day Of Infamy, I will be applying American-style (month followed by day) date rendering throughout this article. Read: Deuteronomy 32:1 to 7.


I think that most people, both Christians and non-Christians, can “sense” that there is something eerily and profoundly deep about the Don McLean song American Pie.  Perhaps many, however, are partially satisfied with the prevailing theory that this riveting, poignant, cryptic hymn deals primarily with the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. “Big Bopper” Richardson on February 3, 1959, in a fiery plane crash in northern Iowa.  I am certainly not satisfied with that theory; there is clearly much, much more to the song than a tribute to these rock legends and a young man’s regret over lost innocence.  Rather, this prophetic song, indeed like a Bible prophecy itself, contains both a surface layer or layers of meaning including “types” or “allusions”, as well as a much deeper, more profound layer of significance and eventual fulfillment.  In this article, I will attempt to describe just what the “ultimate fulfillment” of this prophetic lament is destined to entail.

To quote Ron Taylor (link supplied below; bold emphasis mine throughout this article)-


Indeed, absolutely!  The album was dedicated to Buddy Holly, it is not about Buddy Holly.

Ever since I was a boy, I have felt that this most amazing song, written by Don McLean, speaks to the whole country, America, of a time yet future when this once great nation will be no more.  Indeed . . . that it speaks about the very day of her demise.  My first recollection of the song was while riding my bicycle on my paper route in the early 1970’s; it was a cold winter late afternoon around Christmas time, with festive decorations everywhere.  To this day I vividly remember that moment, specifically the words “A Long, Long, Time Ago, I Can Still Remember . . .” which wafted through the air from the driveway of a house near the intersection of West Hall and Woodlawn.  I stopped peddling immediately, absolutely riveted by this astounding tune, there was just something so intensely powerful about it.  I am not certain if I stayed and listened to the remainder of the entire 8 ½ minute song, but I believe that I may have, for I was completely spellbound.  You see, prior to that day, as a 13 year old boy, I actually had no interest in “mainstream” music whatsoever; therefore, I could say that it was the first “non-church” song I was ever truly aware of.  And, of course, during my childhood and teen years, I knew nothing at all about that seemingly obscure end-times nation referred to in the Bible as “Babylon”, the “daughter of Babylon”, and “Babylon the Great”.  Obviously, then, I was not in those younger days able to put my thumb on just what the song was about, I simply sensed that it had to do with a tragic ending.


Intriguingly, the album “American Pie” was released by Yahweh Tunes, Inc., image here-


Yahweh, of course, is a Hebrew name for God.  According to Webster’s Online Dictionary at- http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/definitions/Yahweh

A name for the God of the Old Testament as transliterated from the Hebrew consonants YHVH

Clearly, there is something powerful going on in the spiritual realm regarding this most amazing song.  Is this “God’s song”?  I believe so, personally; while listening to the lyrics I clearly perceive a most urgent message from God, spoken through the voice of Don McLean, in this case the latter acting as His prophetic mouthpiece.  Specifically, I believe that this absolutely unique song represents a most profound “hidden” prophecy for both the True Church and other residents of America to heed.  I further believe that when Don McLean penned the words and music for this song that he was essentially acting as an end times prophet for the One True God, whether he realized it or not.  This is true irrespective of the fact that Mr. McLean, as a man, surely has numerous faults.
