Veil Of White Lace

Song Author Damon Black Lyrics by: Damon Black Performer: Mel Tillis Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]The church door was opened  and I stepped [G7]inside
I went there hoping  that she'd change her [C]mind
There were beautiful roses  in a[C7] bridal [F]bouquet
Where she stood at the[C] alter  in a[G7] veil of white [C]lace

A stranger in silence  reached out for her [G7]hand   
And placed on her finger  a gold weddin[C]g band
There was happiness written  in the[C7] smile on his [F]face
But I couldn't [C]see hers beneath the[G7] veil of white [C]lace

I pitied that stranger  for all he could [G7]see   
Was their life together  until eterni[C]ty  
My heart filled with anger  as I[C7] pictured the [F]face
Of a false hearted [C]quitter  beneath a[G7] veil of white [C]lace

I reached in my pocket  when the wedding was [G7]done   
My hand touched a locket  then it fell on a [C]gun  
It shattered the silence  as[C7] it left its [F]trace
Stains of red [C]crimson  on a[G7] veil of white [C]lace

I ran from the church house  as I threw down the[G7] gun   
But stopped on the door step  for there crossing the [C]lawn
My darling said she had [C7] decided to [F]wait
Death to a [C]stranger  beneath a[G7] veil of white [C]lace

[F]Yes it's death to a [C]stranger beneath a[G7] veil of white [C]lace

The church door was opened  and I stepped inside
I went there hoping  that she'd change her mind
There were beautiful roses  in a bridal bouquet
Where she stood at the alter  in a veil of white lace

A stranger in silence  reached out for her hand
And placed on her finger  a gold wedding band
There was happiness written  in the smile on his face
But I couldn't see hers beneath the veil of white lace

I pitied that stranger  for all he could see
Was their life together  until eternity
My heart filled with anger  as I pictured the face
Of a false hearted quitter  beneath a veil of white lace

I reached in my pocket  when the wedding was done
My hand touched a locket  then it fell on a gun
It shattered the silence  as it left its trace
Stains of red crimson  on a veil of white lace

I ran from the church house  as I threw down the gun
But stopped on the door step  for there crossing the lawn
My darling said she had  decided to wait
Death to a stranger  beneath a veil of white lace

Yes it's death to a stranger beneath a veil of white lace
