D-0h2-- x4

D---0-- x4

G                              C   B7
Last night the willows stopped weeping
    C          D              G
And everything sat hushed and still
    G                 C    B7
And while my body lay sleeping
  C            D      G
I dreamt of Rebecca Deville
       G                  C     B7
Now I wonder if she was a real girl
C        D         G
Did she die when I woke?
C                 D                  B7
Well I'll sleep straight through to tomorrow
    C             D         G
And look for her till I go broke

Intro x1

I found myself by the highway
That I ride in all my dreams
I met her while i was hitchhiking
From England to New Orleans
She rode shotgun but stayed facing me
And I laid down in the back
I fell in love somewhere near Illinois
And she said she loved me right back

G  D    G    D            G          D   C    
Anybody, has anybody seen my little girl around
G      D      G      D
I last saw her in New Orleans
G      D          C
I can't find her now

G                          C        B7
I stepped into the nearest twilight bar
   C      D      G 
To ask if anyone knew
     G                 C       B7
The whereabouts of my Rebecca Deville
    C          D           G
The bartender said that he knew
G                       C   B7
He said that just a few weeks ago
    C           D      G
She hitched a ride out west
        G                             C   B7
With a man who said he'd show her the big time
   C          D            G
Said he would show her the best
G                             C            B7
But he stopped the car two miles down the road
        C     D          G
And he put a gun to her head
    C             D        B7
And raped her of all that she ever had
     C            D             G
When Rebecca was found she was dead


Chorus x
B7   C              G
Low doesn't even begin
    B7           C              G
To describe the shape that I am in
  B7         C             G
But you can dream in both directions
    B7           C      G
And bring the past back again
    B7          C   G
So maybe i can find her
   B7   C            G
Before heaven goes and hides her
B7        C            G 
Hope and keep her from going
C (add some CMaj7's in there, too)
Well i saw her again
It was a sunday evening
She had flagged a ride
It was a Lincoln Continental
She was on the passenger side
She had a hold of the handle
I said Rebecca don't go
He's not what he seems
I said Rebecca don't go
He's not what he seems
Take my word darling
And drop out of this dream
She said
He's going to
The big city
And I'm going too
You know how that is with me
I said stop
Don't you get in the car
Don't you get in the car
'cause I won't be coming back
If you get in the back
Don't you get in the car
Don't you get in the car
'cause I won't be coming back
If you get in the back
My sweetheart
My sweetheart
I will just stay awake
Six years or maybe eight
Till I lose your memory
And all that you've meant to me
'cause I can't stand to see this
I can't stand to see this
I can't stand to see this
Well she got inside
And waved goodbye
And I watched the tail lights
They danced like candle light
And then they went out
My sweetheart
My sweetheart

(walk down from C to the G that goes into the final Chorus)


(walk down from C and end on G)
