She was forty-one, her daddy still called her baby
And everyone in Brownsville thinks she's crazy
'Cause she walks to the station with a suitcase in her hand
See she's, she's looking for a mysterious dark haired man

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever laid your eyes upon
But a man of low degree stood right by her side
And he promised he would take her for his bride

Oh, and Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
Did I hear you say he was meeting you here today, yeah
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Oh, Delta Dawn, what's that flower you got on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
Did I hear you say he was meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you got on, girl?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
Did I hear you say he was meeting you here today?
Gonna take you to his mansion in the sky

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you've got on?
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
Did I hear you say he [Incomprehensible] you here today?
He's gonna take you to his mansion in the sky
To take you to his mansion, oh, can't wait to go in the sky

He's gonna take you, gonna take you
He's gonna take you to his mansion
He's gonna take you, gonna take you
He's gonna take you to his mansion

He's gonna take you
He's gonna take you
He's gonna take you

Take me, take me to his mansion
He promised me a mansion in the sky
Take me to the sky

He's gonna take you
He's gonna take you
He's gonna take you

Take me, take me, take me
Why won't you take me to your mansion?
He promised me a mansion in the sky
Why don't you take me to the sky?
