              DELTA DAWN                Tanya Tucker


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 that he's meetin' you here today

To take you to his manison in the sky

She's forty one and her daddy still calls her baby

All the folks around Brownville say she's crazy

Cause she walks downtown with her suitcase in her hand

Lookin' for a mysterious dark haired man

go to chorus

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

Promised her he'd take her for his bride.
