      About "$1000 Wedding"

      Lyrics for Gram Parsons - "$1000 Wedding"

      It was a $1000 wedding supposed to be held the other day and
      With all the invitations sent
      The young bride went away
      When the groom saw people passing notes

      Not unusual, he might say
      But where are the flowers for my baby
      I'd even like to see her mean old mama
      And why ain't there a funeral, if you're gonna act that way

      I hate to tell you how he acted when the news arrived
      He took some friends out drinking and it's lucky they survived
      Well, he told them everything there was to tell there along the way
      And he felt so bad when he saw the traces of old lies still on their faces

      So why don't someone here just spike his drink
      Why don't you do him in some old way
      Supposed to be a funeral
      It's been a bad, bad day

      The Reverend Dr. William Grace
      Was talking to the crowd
      All about the sweet child's holy face and
      The saints who sung out loud

      And he swore the fiercest beasts
      Could all be put to sleep the same silly way
      And where are the flowers for the girl
      She only knew she loved the world

      And why ain't there one lonely horn and one sad note to play
      Supposed to be a funeral
      It's been a bad, bad day
      Supposed to be a funeral

      It's been a bad, bad day
