George Jones' cover of Hank Williams' "Wedding Bells" was released on Jones' My Favorites Of Hank Williams album in 1962, making it his second tribute album to the legendary country singer.

"Wedding Bells" tells an unfortunate tale. The narrator receives a wedding invitation from his former love, and he proceeds to express how he wishes he was the one marrying her, but he hopes she's happy just the same.

Jones' rendition is wonderfully performed, successfully honoring the great Hank Williams with his tribute.

LYRICS BELOW

I've got the invitation that you sent me
You wanted me to see you change your name
I couldn't stand to see you wed another
But dear, I hope you're happy just the same

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
I hear the children laughing now with plea
Down the aisle with someone else you're walking
Those wedding bells will never ring for me

I planned a little cottage in the valley
I even brought a little band of gold
I knew someday I'd place it on your finger
But now the future looks so dark and cold

I fancy that I see a bunch of roses
A blossom from an orange tree in your hair
And while the organ plays I'll love you truly
Please won't you let me pretend that I am there?

Wedding bells are ringing in the chapel
That should be ringing now for you and me
And home alone I hang my head in sorrow
Those wedding bells will never ring for me
