I took a walk with the palm trees as the daylight fell
A                     E
Sangria in a canteen, talking to myself
G                          D
This tattoo on my left hand is turning purple-ish blue
Em                       F#
Daydreams of the romance, daydreams of you
Bm                             F#
My pretty woman in a ballgown, I'm Richard Gere in a tux
A                                E
Getting married in a courthouse, writing vows in a rush
G                           D
Making out before the judge,with my teenage wife
Em                          F#

It's an American wedding
          Em               Bm7
They don't mean too much, but we were so in love
We had an American wedding
Em                        F#
Now what's mine is yours, that's American law

[Verse 2]
Bm                   F#

A                         E
In a fancy fancy cursive, then turned her term papers in
G                     D
A thesis on Islamic virgin brides and arranged marriage
Em                              F#
Hijabs and polygamist husbands, those poor unamerican girls
Bm                          F#
After school she ran to me, jumped in my 5.0, this is the
A                                    E
Home of the brave, land of the free, but your parents still didn't know
G                                         D
She said, "I've had a hell of a summer, so baby, don't take this hard
Em                                        F#
But maybe we should get an annulment, before this goes way to far."

We had an American wedding

Now what's mine is yours, American divorce

[Verse 3]
Bm                           F#
Well you can have my Mustang, that's all I've got in my name
A                                      E
But Jesus Christ don't break my heart, this wedding ring won't ever wipe off
G                  D
But if you stay, oh if you stay
Em                                 F#
