    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 ameetin' 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 laid eyes on
    Then a man of low degree stood by her side
    And 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 ameetin' you here today
    To take you to his mansion in the sky
