                         rapidly to end

Here's a couple versions of the words that people have passed to me:

VERSION I:

Goin' down the delta where I can have my fun. (2x)
Where I can drink my white lightnin' and gamble,
I can bring my baby home.

Don't the delta look lonely when that evenin' sun goes down. (2x)
Well, you're lookin' for your baby,
   don't know where she could be found.

Goin' back to my usta be although that she done me wrong. (2x)
Well, I think I'll have to forgive her,
   'cause I'm tired of drifting through this world alone.

She treat me dirty, but I love her just the same. (2x)
Well, it just break my heart to hear her
   call some other man call her name.

Now goodbye, I'm going to leave you and I won't be back no more. (2x)
And my mind gets to rambling,
   see you in 1944.


VERSION II:

I'm going down to the Delta
You know where I can have my fun

Well I'm going back to the delta
You kknow where I can have my fun

Where I can drink my white light'nin and gamble
Where I can bring my baby home

Now don't the delta look lonesome when the
Lord when the ev'nin sun go down

Now don't hte delta look lonesome when the
Evenin sun go down

When you been lookin for your baby
Don't know where he could be found

BREAK

He treat me dirty but I
Lord don't you know I lave him just the same

He treat me dirty
but I love him just the same

You know it just breaks my heart to hear
Some other gal call his name

BREAK

Well now goodbye I'm going to leave you and I
Said I won't be home no more

Well goodbye I'm going to leave you
I won't be back no more

You know if I find me a good man
Lord said I won't be back no more
