    Intro:  / G - - - / x2

     

    G                            D

    I am not the kind of girl

                           Am

    Who should be rudely barging in

                C

    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

                    Am           

    And her snotty little family

            C

    All dressed in pastel

             G                        D

    And she is yelling at a bridesmaid

                         Am

    Somewhere back inside a room

                     C

    Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

     

    Am    C        G

    Thi--is i---is surely not

                                            D

    What you thought it would be

    Am    C                      D

    I---I  lose myself in a daydream

    D (hold)

    Where I stand and say

     

    Chorus:

    G                         D                 

       Don't say "Yes" run away now

             Am                       

    I'll meet you when you’re out

                  C               

    Of the church at the back door

    G                      D                      

       Don't wait or say a single vow

             Am

    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

                Am                        

    And the organ starts to play a song

              C

    That sounds like a death march

          G                          D

    And I am hiding in the curtains

                        Am

    It seems that I was uninvited

                 C

    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

            D

    You wish it was me

            D (hold)

    You wish it was me- Don't you?

     

    Chorus

     

    Chorus II:

    G                         D                

       Don't say "Yes" run away now

    Am

    I'll meet you when your out

                  C                     

    Of the church at the back door

    G                        D

        Don't wait or say a single vow

    Am

    Your time is running out

                     C              

    And they said "Speak Now"

     

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

     

    Bridge:

    Em (hold)                        C (hold)

    I hear the preacher say speak now

                      G (hold)   D (hold)

    Or forever hold your pe---ace

    Am

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

    C              

    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

     

    Chorus

     

    G                            D

       And you say "Let’s run away now

          Am               

    I'll meet you when I'm out

               C                         

    Of my tux at the back door

    G             D

       Baby, I didn't say my vows

          Am

    So glad you were around

                      C                         G (hold)

    When they said ‘Speak no--ow’"
