Rebecca© Ken (TexScratch) Smith (2/11/2012) Capo 2 frets to F# Her name was Rebecca; She hailed from West Virginia Came west to seek her fortune and the California Gold Rode in to Oklahoma; And her daughter got the fever Found themselves in Enid; at least that's what I'm told Wild horses were her passion; She could tame the wildest one No saddles were her fashion; 'Neath the sooner summer sun. Oh Rebecca In the mornings she'd awaken; taking in the rising sun Then gaze to the western sky; where there's gold to be won For Daniella no healing; in that winter record setting cold Sutter's Mill further than ever; like her visions of California Gold Dreams, they were a crashing; from many, down to one And the drought of '53 was gnashing; at her crops neath the sooner summer sun. Oh Rebecca Goodbye my sweet Daniella; forever on my mind Your smile my only pleasure; a gift of treasured times They say she went riding on a morning in the spring No notes to give a warning; Or a clue of future things Wild horses were her passion; She could tame the wildest one No saddles in fashion; 'Neath the sooner summer sun. Oh Rebecca
