[Verse]

    G                                C
The wedding bells were ringing on a moonlit winter's night
    G                         D
The church was decorated, all within was gay and bright.
  G                          C
A woman with a baby came and saw the lights aglow,
    G                    C                     D               G
She thought of how those same bells chimed for her three years ago.
    G                             C
I'd like to be admitted, sir, she told the sexton old
     G                        D
Just for the sake of baby to protect him from the cold.
   G                             C
He told her that the wedding was for the rich and grand,
    G              C                     D               G
And with the eager watching crowd, she'd have to outside stand.



[Chorus]

          D
While the wedding bells were ringing,
          C                    G
While the bride and groom were there,
D
Marching up the aisle together,
          C               G
While the organ pealed an air;
    D
And tales of fond affection,
       C             G
Vowing never more to part,
     G
Just another fatal wedding,
     D              G
Just another broken heart.


[Verse]

    G                              C
She asked the sexton once again to let her pass inside.
     G                                 D
"For baby's sake you may step in," the gray-haired man replied
    G                              C
"If any one knows reason why this couple should not wed,
G                     C                    D                 G
Speak now, or forever hold your peace:" is what the preacher said!
   G                                   C
"I must object," the woman cried, with voice so meek and mild
     G                                  D
"The bridegroom is my husband, sir, and this our little child."
      G                                       C
"What proof have you?" the preacher said. "My infant," she replied
    G                 C                  D              G
She raised her babey, knelt to pray, the little one had died.


[Chorus]

          D
While the wedding bells were ringing,
          C                    G
While the bride and groom were there,
D
Marching up the aisle together,
          C
While the organ pealed an air;
    D
And tales of fond affection,
       C             G
Vowing never more to part,
     G
Just another fatal wedding,
     D              G
Just another broken heart.


[Verse]

    G                                 C
The parents of the bride then took the outcast by the arm.
       G                                              D
"We'll care for you through life," they said, "you've saved our child from harm."
     G                                   C
The outcast wife, the bride and parents, quickly drove away,
    G                             D                   G
The husband died by his own hand, before the break of day!


[Bridge]

   D                                        C                     G
No wedding feast was spread that night, two graves were made next day
D                                C             G
One for the little baby, and in one the father lay.
     G                            C
The story has been often told, by firesides warm and bright,
   G                                  D             G
Of bride and groom, an outcast, and a fatal wedding night.



[Chorus]
          D
While the wedding bells were ringing,
          C                   G
While the bride and groom were there,
D
Marching up the aisle together,
          C               G
While the organ pealed an air;
    D
And tales of fond affection,
       C             G
Vowing never more to part,
     G
Just another fatal wedding,
     D              G
Just another broken heart.
