delta dawn lyrics – loretta lynn

“delta dawn”

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 meetin’ 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
lookin’ for a mysterious dark haired man
in her younger days they called her delta dawn
prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes upon
but a man of low degree stood by her side promised her he’d take her for his bride
delta dawn what’s that flower…
delta dawn what’s that flower…
delta dawn
