Uncaught ReferenceError: myList is not defined

its probably something really stupid and simple but I cant figure out what the problem is.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>JavaScript and the DOM</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">
    <h1 id="myHeading">JavaScript and the DOM</h1>
    <p>Making a web page interactive</p>
    <p>Things that are purple:</p>
<script src="app.js"> </script>
const myList = document.getElementsByTagName('li');

for (let i = 0; i < mylist.length; i++) {
  myList[i].style.color = 'purple';
