Delta Dawn  Tanya Tucker


Capo 4


[G]Delta Dawn, what's that [C]flower you have o[G]n
Could it b[G]e a faded rose from days gone [D]by    
And [G]did I hear you s[G7]ay he was a-[C]meeting you here tod[G]ay
To [Em]take you to his mans[D]ion in the [C]sky    [G]


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

In her [G] younger days they cal[F]led her Delta [G]Dawn
[G]Prettiest woman yo[F]u ever laid eyes [G]on
Then a [C]man of low degree stood b[Am]y he[D7]r si[G]de
And [G]promised her he'd [F]take her for his bri[G]de
