[Chorus]
         E
I cannot come! 
         A                          E
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now, 
       B                      E
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow, 
       A                            E
I have fields and commitments, that cost a pretty sum, 
     B                         E
Pray hold me excused, I cannot come. 


[Verse 1]
          A                   E
A certain man held a feast on wide estate in town. 
   B                        E
He laid a festive table, He wore a wedding gown, 
   A                           E
He sent out invitations to his neighbors far and wide, 
    B                               E
But when the meal was ready each of them replied: 


[Chorus]
         E
I cannot come! 
         A                          E
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now, 
       B                      E
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow, 
       A                            E
I have fields and commitments, that cost a pretty sum, 
     B                         E
Pray hold me excused, I cannot come. 


[Verse 2]
           A                       E
The master rose up in anger called his servants by name; 
       B                           E
Said, "Go into the town; fetch the blind and the lame. 
      A                          E
Fetch the peasant and the pauper for this I have willed: 
   B                                     E   
My banquet must be crowded, and my table must be filled."


[Chorus]
         E
I cannot come! 
         A                          E
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now, 
       B                      E
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow, 
       A                            E
I have fields and commitments, that cost a pretty sum, 
     B                         E
Pray hold me excused, I cannot come. 


[Verse 3]
             A                            E
When all the poor had assembled there was still room to spare, 
       B                    E
So the master demanded, "Go search everywhere; 
           A                             E
Search the highways and the by ways, and force them to come in 
   B                               E
My table must be filled before the banquet can begin."


[Chorus]
         E
I cannot come! 
         A                          E
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now, 
       B                      E
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow, 
       A                            E
I have fields and commitments, that cost a pretty sum, 
     B                         E
Pray hold me excused, I cannot come. 


[Verse 4]
            A                        E
Now God has written a lesson for the rest of mankind;
   B                             E
If we are slow in responding, He may leave us behind. 
      A                      E
He's preparing a banquet for that great and glorious day, 
         B                                    E
When the Lord and Master calls us, be certain not to say:


[Chorus]
         E
I cannot come! 
         A                          E
I cannot come to the banquet, don't trouble me now, 
       B                      E
I have married a wife, I have bought me a cow, 
       A                            E
I have fields and commitments, that cost a pretty sum, 
     B                         E
Pray hold me excused, I cannot come.
