Delta Dawn
Forty-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
Say she's looking for a mysterious dark-haired man

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever laid your eyes on
Then a man of low degree stood by her side
Promised her he would take her to be his bride

Spoken: Come on, now
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 would meet you here today
To take you to a mansion in the sky?

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 would meet you here today
To take you to a mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
Did I hear you say he would meet you here today
To take you to a mansion in the sky?
And did I hear you say he would meet you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?
In the sky
In the sky
