    Intro:  / G - - - / x2


    G                            D

    I am not the kind of girl


    Who should be rudely barging in


    On a white veil occasion

            G                               D

    But you are not the kind of boy

                             Am                         C (hold first time)

    Who should be marrying the wrong girl


    G                                  D

    I sneak in and see your friends


    And her snotty little family


    All dressed in pastel

             G                        D

    And she is yelling at a bridesmaid


    Somewhere back inside a room


    Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry


    Am    C        G

    Thi--is i---is surely not


    What you thought it would be

    Am    C                      D

    I---I  lose myself in a daydream

    D (hold)

    Where I stand and say



    G                         D                 

       Don't say "Yes" run away now


    I'll meet you when you’re out


    Of the church at the back door

    G                      D                      

       Don't wait or say a single vow


    You need to hear me out

                   C (hold first time)

    And they said "Speak Now"



    Instrumental:  / G - - - / D - - - / Am - - - / C - - - /


    G                                D

    Fond gestures are exchanged


    And the organ starts to play a song


    That sounds like a death march

          G                          D

    And I am hiding in the curtains


    It seems that I was uninvited


    By your lovely bride-to-be


    Am        C     

    She---e floats down the aisle

               G                  D  

    Like a pageant queen

          Am   C

    But I--I kno--ow


    You wish it was me

            D (hold)

    You wish it was me- Don't you?




    Chorus II:

    G                         D                

       Don't say "Yes" run away now


    I'll meet you when your out


    Of the church at the back door

    G                        D

        Don't wait or say a single vow


    Your time is running out


    And they said "Speak Now"


    Instrumental:  / G - - - / D - - - / Am - - - / C - - - / x2



    Em (hold)                        C (hold)

    I hear the preacher say speak now

                      G (hold)   D (hold)

    Or forever hold your pe---ace


    There's a silence, there's my last chance


    I stand up with shaky hands

        G            D (hold)

    All eyes on me

    Am                        C

    Horrified looks from everyone in the room

          D                           D (hold)

    But I'm only lookin' at you


    Repeat Verse 1




    G                            D

       And you say "Let’s run away now


    I'll meet you when I'm out


    Of my tux at the back door

    G             D

       Baby, I didn't say my vows


    So glad you were around

                      C                         G (hold)

    When they said ‘Speak no--ow’"
