Longbranch Pennywhistle - Rebecca Lyrics

written: G. Frey
lead vocal: G. Frey

She looked on me sweetly
I told her I couldn't stay
I reasoned discreetly
Yet I couldn't turn away

Two nights I'd played
And I still hadn't prayed
For the girl in L.A.
Who called me today
To say, "I love you"

If I really loved you
Why'd Rebecca come today?
And I placed her above you
Blind to all except my own way

In a cold country town
In a green gingham gown
I'm pledged to a dove
But I must give some love
To Rebecca

She'd been walkin' at my heels
And I know just how it feels to see a face
And she never asked my name
No, she knew it was the same as my embrace

Soar through the night
With mellow smiling love is mine
It all takes time
