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. Roosenbloom let me sit beside her So we'd pass notes and after school we'd play
[Chorus] Singing ring around the rosie Pocket full of dreams and posies Patty cake and baker's man Tag your it, kick the can
And I think I hear my mama calling Gotta go Man I loved her so
High school days with me and Becky learning what it really means to be in love Give and take, holding back for Heaven's sake And fighting for a week and making up I said please Becky won't you marry me Prom night in my car out by the curb She was so surprised, first she laughed and then she cried And somewhere in my heart I'm sure I heard
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, your love grows
Laura Jean was born in Tennessee Now 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
And I think I hear your mama calling Gotta go Oh man I loved you so

Karen from Manchester, NhThis song is lyrically perfect. It touches me absolutely every time I hear it. It is also one of the very, very few times my husband has told me that I "have" to hear a song, after he heard it for the first time!
