Waylon Jennings Delta Dawn Lyrics

Last updated:

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever had laid eyes on
But a man of low degree stood by her side
Promised her he'd take her for his bride but he lied
Delta Dawn what's that flower you have on could it be a faded rose of days gone by
Did I hear you say he was meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky
[ guitar ]
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
Looking for a mysterious dark haired man
Delta Dawn what's that flower...
Delta Dawn what's that flower...
Delta Dawn what's that flower...
Delta Dawn what's that flower...
