Joe Cocker – Delta Lady lyrics

Woman of the country now that I found you
Longing for your soft and fertile delta
And I whisper sighs to satisfy your longing
For the warm and tender shelter of my body

You're mine, yes you're mine delta lady
You're mine, be all mine
Delta lady

Please don't ask how many times I found you
Standing wet and naked in the garden
And I think of days
And different ways I held you
We were closely touching, yes our heart was beating

You're mine, yes you're mine delta lady
You're mine, be all mine
Delta lady

Oh when I'm home again in England
I think of you love
Cause, I love you, love

There are concrete mountains in the city
And pretty city women live inside them
Oh but yet it seems the city scene is lacking
I'm so glad you're waiting for me in the country

You're mine, yes you're mine delta lady
You're mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Mine, be all mine
Delta lady...

    I don't think Joe cocker wrote this tune, I believe it was Leon Russel.

    Saying that, Joe Cocker had an incredible way of making a song his own! Another example is Beatles, with a little help from my friends.
    Also available is Joe Cocker with Tom Jones doing delta lady, you can actually understand the words when Sir Tom sings.
