Delta Dawn

Song Author Alex Harvey og Larry Collins Performer: Tanya Tucker Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Delta Dawn what's that [C]flower you have [G]on  
Could it be a faded rose from days gone [D7]by   
And [G]did I hear you say he was a [C]meeting you here to[G]day  
To take you to his [D7]mansion in the [C]sky  

[G]She's forty-one and her [C]daddy still calls her [G]baby
All the folks around [C]Brownsville say she's [G]crazy
Cause she [C]walks around town with a [Am]suitcase [D7]in her [G]hand
Looking for a [C]mysterious dark haired [G]man  

In her younger days they [C]called her Delta [G]Dawn
Prettiest woman you [C]ever laid eyes [G]on  
Then a [C]man of low degree stood by her [G]side
And promised her he'd [C]take her for his [G]bride

[G]Delta Dawn what's that [C]flower you have [G]on  
Could it be a faded rose from days gone [D7]by   
And [G]did I hear you say he was a [C]meeting you here to[G]day  
To take you to his [D7]mansion in the [C]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 a 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 around town 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
Then 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 a meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky
