I Never Knew Her Name Lyrics

by Elton John

Well she swept through the church
Like a sweet Sunday prayer
While the choir sang son of Heaven
And the groom just walked on air

I was killing time with Jesus
When the wedding bells began
And I saw the most beautiful woman
Getting married to a handsome man

She walked like a mystery
And she passed like summer rain
And she said I do like an angel
But I never knew her name

Oh the congregation gathered
But in darkness I remained
In love with the bride of a handsome man
But I never knew her name

In the shadow of the holy
Oh, I heard my tell-tale heart
Whisper words that never reached her
As her vows were made at last

Oh, the preacher with his blessing
Pronounced them man and wife
And I saw the most beautiful woman
Make a promise to be kept for life

She walked like a mystery
And she passed like summer rain
And she said I do like an angel
But I never knew her name

Oh, the congregation gathered
But in darkness I remained
In love with the bride of a handsome man
But I never knew her name

Ooo ooo ooo aah

She walked like a mystery
And she passed like summer rain
And she said I do like an angel
But I never knew her name

Oh, the congregation gathered
But in darkness I remained
In love with the bride of a handsome man
But I never knew her name

Like a mystery, like summer rain
She said I do like an angel
But I never knew her name

Oh, the congregation gathered
But in darkness I remained
In love with the bride of a handsome man
(Ooo)
I'm in love with the bride of a handsome man
But I never knew her name
(Ooo ooo ooo)
I never knew her name
(Ooo ooo ooo)
I never knew her name
(Ooo ooo ooo)
I never knew her name
(Ooo ooo ooo)
