Delia's Gone  Johnny Cash

I have seen a few other chords for this but they have been incorrect - lots of Bm
notation (listen to the song and it is clearly a B7) - the only other one was in a different
key. This is 100% correct and in the key of A, as taken from his Unearthed compilation album.
De[A]lia, oh, De[D]lia Del[A]ia all m[A7]y life
If I [D]hadn't have shot poor Delia
I'd have [B7]had her for my w[E]ife
Delia's g[A]one, on[D]e more r[A]ound D[E]elia's gon[A]e
I [A]went up to [D]Memphis
[A]And I met Delia [A7]there Fo[D]und her in her parlor
And I t[B7]ied to her c[E]hair
Delia's g[A]one, one[D] more rou[A]nd Del[E]ia's g[A]one
She was low down an[D]d trifling
An[A]d she was cold and [A7]mean
Kind[D] of evil make me want to G[B7]rab my sub mac[E]hine
Delia's g[A]one, one m[D]ore ro[A]und Deli[E]a's go[A]ne
First time I s[D]hot her I s[A]hot her in the [A7]side
Ha[D]rd to watch her suffer
[B7]But with the second shot s[E]he died
Deli[A]a's gone, on[D]e more[A] round [E]Delia's[A] gone
But jai[A]ler, oh, [D]jailer [A]jailer,
I can't[A7] sleep 'Cause[D] all around my bedside
I hear the[B7] patter of Delia's[E] feet
Delia's [A]gone, one[D] more rou[A]nd Del[E]ia's g[A]one
So if you woman's d[D]evilish
[A]You can let her r[A7]un
Or you [D]can bring her down and do her
[B7]Like Delia got [E]done
[A]Delia's go[D]ne, one m[A]ore ro[E]und De[A]lia's go[D]ne
