[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

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

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?

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

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.

There were Yoders and Troyers and Hostetlers and Herschbergers and Schwartzentrubers and
Weavers and Millers were there too.
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.
