DELTA DAWN

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on?

Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?

And did I hear you say

He was a-meeting you here today

To take you to his mansion in the sky?

 

She's fourty-one and her daddy still calls her baby.

All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy.

'Cause she walks downtown with a suitcase in her hand.

Looking for a mysterious dark-haired man.

 

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn

Prettiest woman you ever laid eyes on.

Then a man of low degree stood by her side

And promised her he'd take her for his bride.
