There is a link where they explain the lyrics to the song American Pie, which is a tribute to Buddy Holly. Pretty cool I think.

Thanks, that was a nice diversion.

I'm astonished, though, that he didn't mention the most simple and straightforward interpretation of the final verse:

And the three men I admire most, the father, son and the holy ghost,

They caught the last train for the coast . . .

I think it means, simply, that he's lost his faith. It's my favorite line the song.
