The Statler Brothers — Delta Dawn lyrics

What's that flower you have on Delta Dawn
Delta Dawn what's that flower you have on could it be a faded rose of days gone by
And did I hear you say he was meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky

In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Prettiest woman you ever laid your eyes on
Then a man of low degree stood by her side promised her he'd take her for his bride
Delta Dawn what's that flower...

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...
