Helen Reddy – 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 meet-in' 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 down-town with a suitcase in her hand
Look-in' 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,
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? repeat4x
And did I hear you say he was a meet-in' you here today,
to take you to his mansion in the sky.
