Thread Name: Songs for a Wedding
Subject: RE: Songs for a Wedding
Actually, I don't think some of the lyrics of "Today" really suit a wedding. (I think Randy Sparks wrote it, didn't he, BTW.)

Tom Paxton's "Outward Bound" is a great wedding song. (He may have even written it for a wedding.)
Outward Bound (cover)
The lyrics and chords are shown too.
Nana Mouskouri does a wonderful job on this song too, but all I can find at YT is her recording of "En Partant" (the French version of the lyrics)

Here's another excellent wedding song:
"(I'd Be Me) Just Loving You". (The video is blurry because it's from a thumbnail, but the audio is fine. This is a cover of a song by a group whose name I'm blanking on at the moment. It's something like "The Kanes.")

And Tom Paxton has another very good song for weddings:

Home To Me Is Anywhere You Are
I'll post the lyrics in a separate thread.
