George Jones and Tammy Wynette - The Ceremony

The Ceremony

George Jones and Tammy Wynette performs "The Ceremony "on Hee Haw.

"The Ceremony" became the template for many of their early duets: romantic, occasionally overwrought Harlequin love songs that bubbled with optimism. The song mimics a wedding service, beginning with a minister's preamble over a church organ and containing verses where George and Tammy renew their vows and profess their love for each other. It became a highlight of their live shows, although Jones biographer Bob Allen wryly noted that when they sang "The Ceremony" onstage, it was "quite unlike the quickie civil ceremony with which they'd actually sealed their nuptial bond."[In 1995, Jones reflected in his autobiography, "It sounds cheesy now, but it was a show-stopper for two people whose divorce was often the subject of tabloid speculation. People went crazy when we did 'The Ceremony' live."

George Jones And Tammy Wynette The Ceremony Lyrics

Dearly beloved

We are gathered together in the presence of god and these witnesses

To join this man and this woman in the bonds of holy matrimony

Do you, Tammy, take this man, George, to be your lawfully wedded husband?

To love and to cherish until death do you part?

I'll take this man and by him I'll stand

I promise that we'll never part

To him, I'll be true, there'll be no one new

From now, till death do us part

And do you, George, take this woman, Tammy

To be your lawfully wedded wife

To love and to cherish, until death do you part?

Yes, I'll take this woman, she'll be mine forever

And I'll love her, with all of my heart

To have and to hold, my love won't grow cold

I promise, till death do us part

We'll take each other

From this day forward

Together in sickness or health

United with love

We'll face life together

If we're poor or if we have wealth

For better or worst

You'll always come first

And no one can keep us apart

Yes, we take each other

Forsaking all others

Together, till death do us part

I now pronounce you man and wife
