    Lyrics

    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 meetin' you here today
    To take you to his mansion in the sky.

    She's 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
    Lookin' for a mysterious dark haired man.

    In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
    Prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes upon
    But a man of low degree stood by her side
    Promised her he'd take her for his bride.

    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 meetin' you here today
    To take you to his mansion in the sky.

    She's 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
    Lookin' for a mysterious dark haired man.

    In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
    Prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes upon
    But a man of low degree stood by her side
    Promised her he'd take her for his bride.

    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 meetin' you here today
    To take you to his mansion in the sky.

    She's 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
    Lookin' for a mysterious dark haired man.

    In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
    Prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes upon
    But a man of low degree stood by her side
    Promised her he'd take her for his bride.
