In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes on
But a man of low degree stood by her side
Promised her hed take her for his bride but he lied

Delta Dawn, whats that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Shes forty-one and her daddy still calls her baby
All the folks around Brownsville say shes crazy
Cause she walks downtown with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark haired man

Delta Dawn, whats that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, whats that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, whats that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn whats that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?
