  • She wants to get married, she wants it perfect
    She wants her grandaddy preaching the service
    Yeah, she wants magnolias out in the country
    Not too many people, save her daddy some money

    Ooh, she got it all planned out
    Yeah, I can see it all right now

    I'll wear my black suit, black tie, hide out in the back
    I'll do a strong shot of whiskey straight out the flask
    I'll try to make it through without crying so nobody sees
    Yeah, she wanna get married
    But she don't wanna marry me

    I remember the night when I almost kissed her
    Yeah, I kinda freaked out, we'd been friends for forever
    And I always wondered if she felt the same way
    When I got the invite, I knew it was too late

    And I know her daddy's been dreading this day
    Oh, but he don't know he ain't the only one giving her away

    I'll wear my black suit, black tie, hide out in the back
    I'll do a strong shot of whiskey straight out the flask
    I'll try to make it through without crying so nobody sees
    Yeah, she wanna get married
    But she don't wanna marry me

    Bet she got on her dress now, welcoming the guests now
    I could try to find her, get it off of my chest now
    But I ain't gonna mess it up, so I'll wish her the best now

    So I'm in my black suit, black tie, hiding out in the back
    Doing a strong shot of whiskey straight out the flask
    I'll try to make it through without crying so nobody sees
    Yeah, she wanna get married
    Yeah, she gonna get married
    But she ain't gonna marry me
    Whoa, she ain't gonna marry me, no Writer/s: Ashley Glenn Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Shane L McAnally, Thomas Rhett
