WEDDING	BELLS
Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Claude Boone

CAPO:  2nd FRET  KEY: E  PLAY: D

I [D] have the invi-[A] tation that you [D] sent me
You wanted me to [A] see you change your [D] name [D7]
I [G] couldn't stand to see you wed an-[D] other
But [A] dear I hope you're happy just the [D] same. [D7]

[G] Wedding bells are ringing in the [D] chapel
That [A] should be ringing now for you and [D] me [D7]
[G] Down the aisle with someone else you're [D] walkin'
Those [A] wedding bells will never ring for [D] me.

I planned a little cottage in the valley
I even bought a	little band of gold
I thought some day I'd place it	on your	finger
But now the future looks so dark and cold.

Wedding	bells are ringing in the chapel
I hear the children laughing now with glee
At home	alone I	hang my	head in	sorrow
For wedding bells will never ring for me.

I fancy	that I see a bunch of roses
A blossom from an orange tree in your hair
While the organ plays I love you truly
Please let me pretend that I am there.

Wedding	bells are ringing in the chapel
Ever since the day you set me free
I knew someday that you would wed another
But wedding bells will never ring for me.

Note.  Recorded March 20, 1949
