Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Gathered by the riverside
The current pulls one hundred years
Each way
Verse 2
Savin' souls and singin' songs
They beg and smile, but
Murder just the same
Verse 3
Watch me slip into the trees
Breakin' brush past darkness
And the cold
Verse 4
Gray crosses mark the ridge
Reached her grave and fell
Down in the snow
Verse 5
That's when I dreamed
That I was Rebecca Wild
That's when I dreamed who she was
Verse 6
Who she was
Verse 7
Rebecca stood in the union hall
Said: "your hands are weak from
Holdin' on too strong"
Verse 8
That was the lost night she ever spoke
A company man, he drove
Her off the road
Verse 9
That's when I dreamed that
I was Rebecca Wild
That's when I dreamed who she was
Verse 10
Who she was
Verse 11
That's when I dreamed that
I was Rebecca Wild
That's when I dreamed who she was
Verse 12
Last night I dreamed that
I was Rebecca Wild
Last night I dreamed who she was
Verse 13
Rebecca Wild
