    "Delta Mama Blues" Lyrics

    Townes Van Zandt

    Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
    I wanna be your delta mama for a while
    And if you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
    I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

    If you're blue don't cry just wander right downtown
    You can find your delta mama waitin' there
    I thought you knew that I would never let you down
    I can ease your mind and take away all your cares

    Come away with me, my little delta boy
    I wanna be your delta mama for a while

    If you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
    I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

    If the grass grows brown don't you hang your head too low
    There ain't no need for you to sit and pine
    If you'll just ask around then I'm sure someone will know
    Just exactly what it takes to get you back to feelin' fine

    Come away with me, my little delta boy
    I wanna be your delta mama for a while
    If you stay, you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
    I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

    Well, if you don't know by now what I've been tryin' so hard to say
    Well, my delta boy I'm afraid you're up too tight
    But you take it slow and somehow you come meandering out my way
    And I'll take you in my arms and make it right

    Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
    I wanna be your delta mama for a while
    If you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
    I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

    Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
    I wanna be your delta mama for a while
