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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/the-statler-brothers-delta-dawn-lyrics.html ]
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...
