Intro: GG chord GG chord 
 
GG chord                    DD chord
I am not the kind of girl 
              AmAm chord
Who should be rudely barging in
     CC chord
On a white veil occasion 
    GG chord                       DD chord
But you are not the kind of boy 
              AmAm chord                    CC chord -stop
Who should be marrying the wrong girl
 
 
GG chord                       DD chord
I sneak in and see your friends 
        AmAm chord            
And her snotty little family 
    CC chord
All dressed in pastel 
    GG chord                   DD chord
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
          AmAm chord
Somewhere back inside a room 
          CC chord
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry
 
 
AmAm chord      CC chord      GG chord
Thi--is i---is surely not 
                          DD chord
What you thought it would be
AmAm chord   CC chord                  DD chord
I---I  lose myself in a daydream
n.CC chord.
Where I stand and say
 
 
GG chord               DD chord                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now
AmAm chord                        
I'll meet you when your out 
       CC chord                      GG chord
Of the church at the back door
              DD chord                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
AmAm chord
You need to hear me out
         CC chord -stop              
And they said "Speak Now"
 
 
Interlude: GG chord DD chord AmAm chord CC chord 
     
 
GG chord                   DD chord
Fond gestures are exchanged 
        AmAm chord                         
And the organ starts to play a song 
     CC chord
That sounds like a death march
    GG chord                     DD chord
And I am hiding in the curtains
              AmAm chord
It seems that I was uninvited 
        CC chord
By your lovely bride-to-be
 
 
AmAm chord      CC chord      
She---e floats down the aisle 
       GG chord            DD chord   
Like a pageant queen 
    AmAm chord   CC chord
But I--I kno--ow 
    GG chord
You wish it was me
    DD chord -stop
You wish it was me- Don't you?
 
 
GG chord               DD chord                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now
AmAm chord                        
I'll meet you when your out 
       CC chord                      GG chord
Of the church at the back door
              DD chord                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
AmAm chord
You need to hear me out
         CC chord               GG chord
And they said "Speak Now"
                DD chord                 
Don't say "Yes" run away now
AmAm chord
I'll meet you when your out 
       CC chord                      GG chord 
Of the church at the back door
              DD chord
Don't wait or say a single vow 
AmAm chord
Your time is running out
         CC chord               GG chord
And they said "Speak Now"
 
 
  DD chord    AmAm chord    CC chord    GG chord
Ohooho laaaahhoh
DD chord                    AmAm chord       CC chord   
Oooh- Say you see me now -ooohooh
 
 
EmEm chord  -Once               CC chord 
I hear the preacher say speak now 
           GG chord         DD chord    DD chord
Or forever hold your pe---ace
AmAm chord                 
There's a silence, there's my last chance 
CC chord               
I stand up with shaky hands 
    GG chord       DD chord -once
All eyes on me
AmAm chord                        CC chord
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
    DD chord                   DD chord -once
But I'm only lookin' at you
 
 
GG chord                    DD chord
I am not the kind of girl 
              AmAm chord
Who should be rudely barging in
     CC chord
On a white veil occasion 
    GG chord                       DD chord
But you are not the kind of boy 
              AmAm chord                     CC chord
Who should be marrying the wrong girl
 
 
      GG chord               DD chord                  
Oops! Don't say "Yes" run away now

I'll meet you when your out 
       CC chord                      GG chord
Of the church at the back door
              DD chord                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
AmAm chord
You need to hear me out
     CC chord               GG chord
They said "Speak Now"
                  DD chord
And you say "Lets run away now"
     AmAm chord                
I'll meet you when I'm out
      CC chord                    GG chord
Of my tux at the back door
       DD chord
Baby I didn't say my vows
   AmAm chord
So glad you were around
          CC chord                  GG chord -once
When they said "Speak no--ow"

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
