Lyrics for Delta Dawn
By Jody Miller

Mail these lyrics to a friend

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 meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky-y?

She's forty-one and her daddy still calls her baby
All the folks 'round Brownsville say she's crazy
'Cause she walks down town 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
And 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 meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky-y?

Delta Daw-awn, 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 meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky-y?

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 meetin' you here today?
To take you to his mansion in the sky-y

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 meetin' you here today?
To take you to his mansion in the sky-y

Delta-a Dawn, what's that flower you have on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by? (fade)
