Bryan White – Rebecca Lynn, is a song co-written by Skip Ewing and Don Sampson, originally recorded by Ewing on his 1990 album A Healin’ Fire.
It was later recorded by American country music singer Bryan White. It was released in September 1995 as the fourth and final single from his self-titled debut album. The song reached a peak of Number One on the Billboard country charts in early 1996, giving White his second Number One.
Is a mid-tempo country ballad in which the narrator recalls a female named Rebecca Lynn, a “quiet girl with green eyes full of fire” with whom he fell in love in second grade. The first verse and chorus follow them through elementary school as they play together. In the second verse, they learn in high school “what it really means to be in love” and eventually get engaged after the prom. By the third verse, the two have married and had a child named Laura Jean together as well.
