Lyrics

She was standing at the alter screamin' she was gonna kill him
If she ever saw his sorry face again
But you could have heard a pin drop when she stopped to turn around
As the best man come stumblin' in

He hollered Jenny don't be angry, girl it weren't nobody's fault
It was raining and we never saw the sign
That blessed engineer he didn't have nowhere to go
And you just can't stop ninety cars on no damn dime

We though she'd break down cryin', maybe scream aloud in horror
She just put down that bouquet and walked away
Climbed into her daddy's car, drove forty miles to Sutter's Bridge
And that's the tale of Jenny Clancy's wedding day


The day she sent her soul to find him in the great unknown wide open
She'd spent the last sixteen months a wishin' and a hopin'
That they'd never spend another night apart
Now heaven knows they never will

Well I often stop to think about the way she looked
As she dove into the darkness that night
Shiny high heels on both her perfect little feet
Beneath that wedding gown of shimmering white

Well I ran like hell to catch her, 'fore she went over the railing
All it got me was a handful of lace
And the last thing I remember as she disappeared below
Was the sad smile on her face

The night she sent her soul to find him in the great unknown wide open
She'd spent the last sixteen months a wishin' and a hopin'
That they'd never spend another night apart
Now heaven knows they never will

We buried them together, 'neath the single word "Forever"
Carved in granite, set up on a grassy hill
And on windy summer evenings, when the rain comes fallin' down
I swear I hear her callin' for him still

Just like the night she sent her soul to find him
In the great unknown wide open
She'd spent the last sixteen months a wishin' and a hopin'
That they'd never spend another night apart
Now heaven knows they never will
She swore they'd never spend another night apart now heaven knows they never will

She was standing at the alter, screamin' she was gonna kill him
If she ever saw his sorry face again...
