"$ 1.000 Wedding" as written by and Gram Parsons....
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
Supposed to be a funeral
It's been a bad, bad day

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

    General CommentThis is such an awsome song. Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield do a great job revising this Gram Parsons/Emmy Lou Harris(not 11% sure if she was the second half of it, but it's a safe bet.)
