She walked into town in a long white gown
And the band played on with no one around
And the rice was gone hours ago
And the white wheeled limousine's standing alone

Well, they met at the club where the brasses blow
Where the wine did flow, oh, he moved so slow
But finally one night as the wind stood still
Het got up the nerve and she said "I will"

The day did come and the groomsmen arrived
Came a little early to go over their lines
As they walked to the church on the cobblestones
Was heard in the bushes a moan and a groan

Well, she walked into town in a long white gown
And the band played on with no one around
And the rice was gone hours ago
And the white wheeled limousine's standing alone

She didn't want to think that she lived a lie
There was always talk of a wandering eye
He'd come to the club abd he'd look all around
It took a fair-minded man not to wonder aloud

Well, she walked into town in a long white gown
And the band played on with no one around
And the rice was gone, oh hours ago
And the white wheeled limousine's standing alone

And the father of the bride is drinking so slow

    This song is about a groom caught cheating on his bride the day of his wedding. Bruce mentioned this at one of his live concerts. This included some added lyrics "She didn't want to thing she lived a lie; There was always talk of a wandering eye; Come to the club and he'd look all around; ... I recommend checking out the rendition on the live album with Ricky Skaggs named "Cluck Ol' Hen." There is an excellent 14 minute live performance of this song
