Story behind the song
A pioneer lady and her daughter seek fame and fortune during the California gold rush days...
Lyrics
Rebecca© Ken Smith (2/11/2012) 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 Tulsa; at least that's what I'm told Wild horses were her passion; She could tame the wildest one No saddles her fashion; 'Neath the sooner summer sun. Oh Rebecca... In the mornings she'd awaken; taking in the rising sun Then gaze back to the western sky; where there's gold to be won For Daniella no healing; that winter record setting cold Sutter's Mill now more distant; and her visions of California Gold Dreams, they were a crashing; from many, down to one 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 special times They say she went riding; on a morning in the spring No note to leave 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...
