So you're headed down a Southern way,
Passing thru the Delta some time today?
In my mind, pictures line the walls
Of a place I used to know, and vividly recall
I love you so much, and you sure sing good
It would mean so much to me, if you would
Sing the Delta a love song for me!
It's the land where the cotton used to grow
That owns a piece of my heart and soul.
