Intro: G G 

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 -stop
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
n.C.
Where I stand and say


G               D                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now
Am                        
I'll meet you when your out 
       C                      G
Of the church at the back door
              D                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
Am
You need to hear me out
         C -stop              
And they said "Speak Now"


Interlude: 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 
    G
You wish it was me
    D -stop
You wish it was me- Don't you?


G               D                  
Don't say "Yes" run away now

       C                      G
Of the church at the back door
              D                       
Don't wait or say a single vow 
Am
You need to hear me out
         C               G
And they said "Speak Now"
                D                 
Don't say "Yes" run away now

       C                      G

Your time is running out
         C               G
And they said "Speak Now"


  D    Am    C    G
Ohooho laaaahhoh

Oooh- Say you see me now -ooohooh


Em  -Once               C 
I hear the preacher say speak now 
           G         D    D
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 -once
All eyes on me
Am                        C
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
    D                   D -once
But I'm only lookin' at you


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
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

 
      G               D

They said "Speak Now"
                  D
And you say "Lets run away now"
     Am                
I'll meet you when I'm out
      C                    G
Of my tux at the back door
       D
Baby I didn't say my vows
   Am
So glad you were around
          C                  G -once
When they said "Speak no--ow"
