Chords used: D A Em G

For the first part of the song, until the chorus, or even the pre-chorus if you'd like, 
grab the first string of the chord and the B and little E string and just pluck it 
Kind of like her song "Untouchable".
But for the rest it's kind of a swinging strum, if you listen to the song you should be 
to pick it up.


D                    A
I am not the kind of girl
              Em
Who should be rudely barging in
     G
On a white veil occasion

D                           A
But you are not the kind of boy
              Em           G (single strum)
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

D                      A
I walk in and see your friends
        Em
And her snotty little family
    G
All dressed in pastel

D                       A
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
          Em
Somewhere back inside a room
          G
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

Em   D  G                                    A
This is surely not what you thought it would be
Em A               G
I lose myself in a day dream
Where I stand and say


D
Don't say yes
A
Run away now
Em
I'll meet you when you're out of the church
G
At the back door
D
Don't wait
A
Or say a single vow
Em
You need to hear me out
G(single strum)
And they said "speak now".

D                A
Fun gestures are exchanged
        Em
And the organ starts to play
G
A song that sounds like a death march

D                      A
And I am hiding in the curtains
              Em
It seems that I was not invited
        A
By your lovely bride-to-be

Em  D
She floats down the isle
G             A
Like a pagent queen

Em A
I know you wish it was me
G
You wish it was me
Don't you?

**Repeat chorus just like above

Don't say yes
Run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church
At the back door
Don't wait
Or say a single vow
You need to hear me out
And they said "speak now"

Don't say yes
Run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church
At the back door
Don't wait
Or say single vow
Your time is running out
And they said "speak now"

D A Em G
D A Em G

Em
I hear the preacher say
D                     A         G
"Speak now or forever hold your peace"
Em
Theres a silence, there's my last chance
D
I stand up with shaking hands
A
All eyes on me

Em                   D
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
G                       A
But I'm only looking at you

D                   A
I'm not the kind of girl
              Em
Who should be rudely barging in
     G
On a white veil occasion

D                           A
But you are not the kind of boy
              Em                 G
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

**Repeat chorus as shown above
Don't say yes
Run away now
I'll meet you when you're out of the church
At the back door
Don't wait
Or say a single vow
You need to hear me out
And they said "speak now"

Then you say
Let's run away now
I'll meet you when I'm out of the my tux
At the back door
Baby
I didn't say my vows
So glad you were around
When they said "speak now"

D(single strum)
