1.

|G / D / |G / / / I have the invi-tation that you sent me, |G / D / |G / / / You wanted me to see you change your name, |C / / / |G / / / I couldn’t stand to see you wed a-nother, |D / / / |G / / / | But dear I hope you’re happy just the same.

C / / / |G / / / Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel, |D / / / |G / / / | That should be ringing now for you and me, C / / / |G / / / Down the aisle with someone else you’re walking, |D / / / |G / / / | Those wedding bells will never ring for me.

2.

I planned a little cottage in the valley, I even bought a little band of gold, I thought someday 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, Those wedding bells will never ring for me.

3.

How 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", Just 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.
