TITLE: Delta Dawn
Lyrics and Chords

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

/ C - F C / C - G - / C C7 F C / C CG F C /

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
And looking for a mysterious dark-haired man

/ C Bb C - / / F DmG7 C - / C Bb C - /

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

{Refrain twice}

/ D - G D / D - A - / D D7 G D / D DA G D /
