I ordered straight tequila, a little courage and shock I asked you for a date and then I asked to tie the knot I got a little wasted, hey, I went a little far I finally got to HUG you when you HELPED me to my car The last thing I remember, I heard myself say I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name CHORUS (slow, blues picking) The next thing I remember I was hearing wedding bells Standing by a woman in a long white lacy veil I raised the veil, she smiled at me, without her left front tooth And I said "Where the hell am I, and just who the hell are you?" She said "I was your waitress, and our last name's now the same." 'Cause I'm married to you baby and I don't even know your name. (back to brisk country strumming) A I'm married to a waitress, I don't even know her name E I've never been too good at all those sexual games A I never thought my love life would quite turn out this way E [tacet] B [tacet] I'm married to a waitress and I don't even know her name.
