"Delta Dawn" as written by Alex Harvey and Larry Collins....
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 meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky
She's forty-one and her daddy still calls her baby
All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy
Cause she walks downtown 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
But 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 meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky
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 meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky
Delta Dawn what's that flower you have on
Could it be a faded rose from days
