Tanya Tucker – Delta Dawn 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 a-meeting 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,
Looking 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,
An he 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 a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his 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 was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his 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 was *meeting* you here today,
To take you to his 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 was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?
