[Verse One] C F There was an Amish wedding yesterday to our delight F C Every Dutchman in the county was there with an appetite C F We don’t all get along so good and yet we reunite G C Whenever we’re invited to a wed--ding. C F It was the bishop’s daughter and the harness maker’s son F C Every district was invited, clear up to highway one, C F The house and barn was full of folks and some were still to come G C And the preacher started preaching at 8:30 [Chorus] C There was Abe Yoder and Joe Yoder and Ben Yoder and John Yoder and Amos Yoder and Eli Yoder and Levi Yoder – he was there too. [Verse Two:] C F Well the preacher preached till half past nine and then he took a seat F C The next one hemmed and hawed and coughed and stared down at his feet C F He finally got em married and then he said let’s eat Because there’s nothing like an Amish wedding dinner. C F There was chicken and potatoes and green beans and wedding steak F C And beets and cheese and pickles apple pie and chocolate cake C F And ice cream coffee tea and juice enough to fill a lake G C and this was just the wedding meals first helping [Chorus] C There was… (do you wanna know who was there?) Abe Troyer and Joe Troyer and Ben Troyer and John Troyer and Amos Troyer and Eli Troyer and Levi Yoder – He was there too. [Verse Three:] C F And then came meatballs made of pork and beef lightly browned F C And bowls of mashed potatoes about a hundred pounds C F And everyone went silent as the platters went around There was no sound except for people chewing. C F I sat next to Eli miller, now there’s a tough old bird, F C We sat and chewed our dinner and didn’t say a word C F Cause every thing we have to say we’ve already heard G C So what’s the use of pointless conversation? [Chorus] C There was Abe Miller and Joe Miller and Bend Miller and John Miller and Amos Miller and Eli Miller and Levi Miller – Was he there? Yeah, he was there too. [Verse Four] C F Joe raised his hand for silence and then he told a joke F C About an Amish preacher didn’t think before he spoke. C F And Bishop miller laughed so hard I thought he had a stroke And he leaked some tapioca out his nostril. C F The older men began to sing and passed around the books. F C The women washed the dishes in the kitchen with the cooks C F The boys all watched the girls and they pretended not to look G C Cause they might just have themselves a date for supper [Outro] C F Then late that night we all went out and hitched up our buggies F C And came back to tell the girls we’re ready to go home. C F We said goodbye in the hallway we said goodbye in the stairs. F C We said goodbye in the barnyard in the cold November air. C F We leaned against our buggy wheels and said goodbye from there G C And we headed home from one great Amish wed--ding. C There were Yoders and Troyers and Hostetlers and Herschbergers and Schwartzentrubers and Weavers and Millers were there too. C There were Beachys and Bylers and Bontragers and Burkholders and Keims and Erbs and Chupps and Frys [spoken] and well, I believe you was there too.
