Picture To Hollywood (Ron & Connie Hynes) video

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.
