Delta Dawn
Loretta Lynn

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
