Picture to Hollywood

The bride wore a floor length gown of nylon lace
And a sweetheart crown that held in place
A fingertip veil of illusion
She carried an American Beauty rose bouquet
And the piano played O Promise Me
Promise me love eternally

But Rita Alverna remembers a different dream
Than the one that she came to realize
When she was young and she looked real good
She sent her picture to Hollywood
And she waited for a reply
Beneath a blue New Brunswick sky

Reception was held in the school auditorium
And the best man's toast to the bride and groom
Wished them the stars and the moon
And Rita would say Betty Mae caught the bride's bouquet
As they drove away that day
In a fifty five chevrolet

But Rita Alverna remembers a different dream
Than the one that she came to realize
When she was young and she looked real good
She sent her picture to Hollywood
And she waited for a reply
Beneath a blue New Brunswick sky

And all the crowd
Came from Harcourt and Browns Yard
And from the Maritimes
And south of the forty nine

The bride wore a floor length gown of nylon lace
And a veil that hid the only trace
Of a single tear that stained her face
She carried an American Beauty rose bouquet
And the piano played O Promise Me
Promise me love eternally

But Rita Alverna remembers a different dream
Than the one that she came to realize
When she was young and she looked real good
She sent her picture to Hollywood
And she waited for a reply
Beneath a blue New Brunswick sky

When she was young and she looked real good
She sent her picture to Hollywood
And she waited for a reply
Beneath a blue New Brunswick sky
