"Waiting at the church" is a short one-verse song which can be found in 101 Pub Favourites for Buskers
. It is a very simple story of a lady being turned down in marriage by way of a note from her intended on the wedding day. The note said succinctly, "Can't get away to marry you today, my wife won't let me!"
How sad, dear surfer. Stop laughing at the back!
"Waiting at the church" was written and composed in 1905 by Henry E. Pether
(music) and Fred W. Leigh
