"Rebecca Lynn"
(Don Sampson, Skip Ewing)

Rebecca Lynn grew up in Carolina
Half a mile from Tucker Cherry's farm
A quiet girl with green eyes full of fire
Her daddy's pride and all her mama's charm

Rebecca Lynn became my heart's desire
'Long about the start of second grade
Mrs. Rosenbloom let me sit beside her
We passed notes and after school we played, singin'

Ring around the Rosie, pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty-cake a Baker's Man, Tag your it, and kick the can
I think I hear my mama calling gotta go
Man I loved her so

High school days me and Becky learnin'
What it really means to be in love
Give and take Holdin' back for heaven's sake
And fightin' for a week then makin' up

I said "Please Becky won't you marry me?"
Prom night in my car out by the curb
She was so suprised first she laughed and then she cried
And somewhere in my heart I'm sure I heard

Ring around the Rosie, pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty-cake a Baker's Man, Tag your it and kick the can
Mama flashed the porch light for me gotta go
Man I loved her so

When love is wrong it dies and that's the way it goes
But when it's right you know love grows

Laura Jean was born in Tennessee
That's a common little miracle I know
But for me and Becky Lynn she's the dream that started when
We fell in love so many years ago, signin'

Ring around the Rosie, pocket full of dreams and posies
Patty-cake a Baker's Man, Tag your it and kick the can
I think I hear your mama callin' gotta go
Oh man I love you so
