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-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 laid eyes on
Then a man of low degree stood by her side
And promised her he'd take her for his bride
