Delta Dawn:Helen Reddy.
#1 in 1973.

CHORUS:
C                       F               C
Delta Dawn, what`s that flower you have on?
C             F     C                   G
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
    C                         F                  C
And did I hear you say he was meeting you here today..
C                  G              F       C
to take you to his mansion in the sky.y.y.y?

#1.
C                       F                      C
She`s forty-one and her Daddy still calls her, Baby.
C                    F                     C
All the folks around Brownsville say she`s crazy.
C         F                       G               C
Cause she walks downtown with her suitcase in her hand..
C             F                      C
looking for a mysterious dark haired man.

#2.
C                        F                C
In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn.
C               F                  C
Prettiest woman you ever laid eyes on.
C      F            G                 C
Then a man of low degree stood by her side..
C                 F                C
promised her he`d take her for his bride.
