McGuire Sisters – Delilah Jones lyrics

Delilah was a high flying floozie
Delilah needed seventeen phones
Don't dial her - there isn't anymore
Delilah - Delilah Jones
Her story is sad
The ending was bad

Delilah Jones - Delilah Jones
She let a no-good guy beguile her
Delilah - weep for Delilah
The devil got a lease on her bones

Just a trumpet-playing bum from Biloxi
Delilah nicely gives him the cross
But Sammy - he blew some crazy notes
And whammy - Delilahs lost

That fiery doll turned into a moll
That he double-crossed
Delilah - Delilah
She let a no-good guy beguile her
Delilah was completely lost

That Sammy hopped a car and a chauffer
He robbed her of her sparkling stones
Then he left her when all the dough was gone
He dropped her - Delilah Jones

Delilah Jones - Delilah Jones
She filled him with lead until he was dead
And out of her bones
Delilah - Delilah
From gallows number 2
She finally got her due
Delilah - Delilah

    The song is about a "gal" who allowed love for a criminal to lead her into a life of crime. An instrumental version was used as the theme of the Frank Sinatra movie "Man with the Golden Arm".
