One Sweet August Afternoon

They couldn’t have picked a nicer day for an outdoor wedding in rural Minnesota …

One Sweet August Afternoon

1. We got married by the lake
Oh that perfect summer day!
One sweet August afternoon.
I looked up and smiled at you
Promised always to be true
One sweet August afternoon.

2. Folding chairs in crooked rows
Where that big old willow grows
One sweet August afternoon.
There we finally tied the knot
Grandma cried and smiled a lot
One sweet August afternoon.

Bridge:
Hear those blackbirds in the reeds
Hear that fiddle on the breeze
We were shining like the dawn
Walking slowly up the lawn
One sweet August afternoon.

3. Gourmet food that never ends
Eighteen tables full of friends
One sweet August afternoon.
Sep’rat’ly though all had come
We were woven now as one
One sweet August afternoon

Chris and Tony got married out at Clare’s Well farm. Linda and I drove out and played music for it.
