Intro - G/F# - G (repeat)
Verse 1
[G]Last night the willow stopped [C]weepi[E]ng
and e[C]verything [D]sat hushed and [G]stilled
[G]and while my body l[C]ay sl[E]eeping
I [C]dreamt of Re[D]becca Devi[G]lle
[G]And I wonder if she'[C]s a r[E]eal girl
Or d[C]id she [D]die when I [G]woke
[C]I'll sleep straig[D]ht through 't[E]il tommorow
And [C]look for her [D]until I go b[G]roke
Verse 2 (same chords as above)
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
Chorus
[G]Any[D]body,[G] has [D]anybody seen[G] my little [D]girl [C]around[C/B] [C/A]
[G]I last [D]saw her[G], in [D]New orleans,[G] I cant [D]find her [C]now [C/B] [C/A]
Verse 3
I stepped into the nearest twilight bar,
to ask if anyone knew
the where abouts of Rebecca Deville
The bartender said that he knew
He said that just a few weeks ago
She hitched a ride out west
With a man said he show her the big time
Said he would show her the best
Verse 4 (this verse could also be sung acapella)
[G]But he stopped the car two miles [C]down the [E]road
And [C]he put a [D]gun to her [G]head
And [C]raped her of [D]all that [E]she ever had
When [C]Rebecca was [D]found she was [G]dead
Verse 5 (????)
And [E]low [C]doesnt even [G]begin
[E]To describe the [C]shape that I am [G]in
But [E]you can [C]dream in both [G]directions
[E]Bring the [C]past back ag[G]ain
[E]So [C]maybe I can [G]find her
[E]Before H[C]eaven goes and [G]hides her
[E]Hope to [C]keep her from [G]going [E]awa[C]y
Bridge - the whole section is on a C chord
(play C - Cmaj7) over the "sweetheart" part)
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 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 to, you nkow how that is with me"
I said stop
dont you get in the car
dont you get in the car
cause i wont be coming back
if you get in the back
dont you get in the car
dont you get in the car
cause i wont be coming back
if you get in the back
My sweetheart
My sweetheart
I will just stay away
six years or maybe eight
until I loose your memory
and all that you 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
and she got inside, and waved goodbye
and i watched the taillights
dance like candlelights
and they went
"Goodbye, my sweetheart"
"Goodbye, my sweetheart"
