Lyric Delta Dawn


Chorus:
Delta Dawn, what s the flower you have
On? Could it be a faded rose from days
Gone by? And did I hear you say he was
A-meetin you here today to take you
To that mansion in the sky?

She s forty-one and her daddy still
Calls her baby. Sll the folks round
Brownsville say she s crazy cause
She walks downtown with her suitcase
In her hand lookin 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
Degrees stood by her side, promised
Her he d take her for his bride.

Chorus:
Delta Dawn, what s the flower you have
On? Could it be a faded rose from days
Gone by? And did I hear you say he was
A-meetin you here today to take you
To that mansion in the sky?

Chorus:
Delta Dawn, what s the flower you have
On? Could it be a faded rose from days
Gone by? And did I hear you say he was
A-meetin you here today to take you
To that mansion in the sky?

Chorus:
Delta Dawn, what s the flower you have
On? Could it be a faded rose from days
Gone by? And did I hear you say he was
A-meetin you here today to take you
To that mansion in the sky?

Chorus:
Delta Dawn, what s the flower you have
On? Could it be a faded rose from days
Gone by? And did I hear you say he was
A-meetin you here today to take you
To that mansion in the sky?
