Veil Of White Lace
recorded by Mel Tillis
written by Damon Black

C                                         G7
The church door was opened  and I stepped inside
I went there hoping  that she'd change her mind
                                C7      F
There were beautiful roses  in a bridal bouquet
                      C           G7             C
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
                                   C7            F
There was happiness written  in the smile on his face
               C                   G7             C
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
                                C7            F
My heart filled with anger  as I pictured the face
                   C                 G7             C
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
                            C7           F
It shattered the silence  as it left its trace
              C            G7             C
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
                        C7          F
My darling said she had  decided to wait
           C                  G7             C
Death to a stranger  beneath a veil of white lace
F                   C                 G7             C
Yes it's death to a stranger beneath a veil of white lace

There have been several artists record this country classic over the year with several versions of it, I just prefer the Mel Tillis does it. The song is easy enough for us less gifted pickers to do, all the verse are the same with simple chords. Just copy and paste Veil Of White Lace lyrics and chords and enjoy a good ol' country tune.
