Skeeter Davis - 1971
Rachel, Rachel, that's the name you kept callin'
Last night while you were asleep
I kissed you and woke you and you hugged me tightly
And said you were having a dream
I teased you and asked you, "Now, who is this Rachel?"
You said I imagined the name
But I knew as soon as I asked you the question
That I'd hear of Rachel again
I've noticed lately while you sleep you've been smilin'
And you've never done this before
And I've noticed lately and I just can't help but wonder
Why I never smile anymore
Well I guess a woman has some way of knowin'
When her man don't feel quite the same
Some other woman is making you smile now
While you slept you told me her name
Now you lie here sleepin', I lie here cryin'
I love you, I can't set you free
You're smilin' and dreamin' that you're with your Rachel
But you'll die in your sleep holdin' me
And I'll die wondering "Who's Rachel?"
