Delta Dawn Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

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

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
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

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 high?

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 right here today?
He's gonna take you to his mansion in the sky high

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 right here today?
He's gonna take you to his mansion in the sky high
To take you to his mansion 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, 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 his mansion in the sky

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