Intro: F

F                    C
I am not the kind of girl
              Am                     G
who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion.
    F                       C  
But you are not the kind of boy
              Am                 G
who should be marrying the wrong girl.
F                       C
I sneak in and see your friends,
        Am
and her snotty little family 
               G
all dressed in pastel.
     F                  C
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
         Am         
somewhere back inside her room
          G
wearing a gown shaped like a pastry.
F    C  Am                                   G
This is surely not what you thought it would be.
F C                Am
I lose myself in a daydream.
                      G
Where I stand and say.

F              C
Don't say yes, run away now
   Am                                G
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door.
      F                 C
Don't wait, or say a single vow
Am
You need to hear me out
 G
and they said speak now.

F, C, Am, G

F                 C       
Fond gestures are exchanged
        Am                              G    
and the organ starts to play a song that sounds like a death march.
    F                  C
and I am hiding in the curtains
                   Am
It seems that I was uninvited by your lovely
G
bride to be.
F         C                      Am            G    
She floats down the aisle like a pageant queen.
F C    Am          
I know you wish it was me
    G
you wish it was me
don't you?

F              C
Don't say yes, run away now
   Am                                G
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door.
      F                 C
Don't wait, or say a single vow
Am
You need to hear me out
 G
and they said speak now.
F              C
Don't say yes, run away now
   Am                                G
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door.
      F                 C
Don't wait, or say a single vow
Am           
your time is running out
   G
and they said speak now.

F, C, Am, G (2x)

F
I hear the preacher say
C              Am              G
Speak now or forever hold your peace.
F
There's a silence

There's my last chance
C
I stand up with shaking hands
    Am      G
all eyes on me.
F                    C
Horrified looks from everyone in the room,
    Am                  G
But I'm only looking at you.

F                    C
I am not the kind of girl
              Am                     G
who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion.
    F                       C  
But you are not the kind of boy
              Am                   G
who should be marrying the wrong girl.

 F              C
So Don't say yes, run away now
   Em                                G
I'll meet you when you're out of the church at the back door.
      F             C
Don't wait, or say a single vow
    Am
You need to hear me out
   G
and they said speak now.
F              C           
And you'll say let's run away now
     Am                          G
I'll meet you when I'm out of my tux at the back door.
F             C
Baby, I didn't say my vows
     Am                  G
so glad you were around when they said Speak Now.

Outro with the F chord.

Sorry but these chords are wrong. If you listen to the song it is G, D, Am, C with no capo. But good try!!! =-]
