OPENER    Basic

4 ladies chain across that ring
You rollaway and circle left
4 ladies rollaway and circle left that way
Allemande left and weave the ring
Delta Dawn, what's the flower you've got on
Swing your girl around and promenade
And did I hear you say, he was meeting you today
To take you to his mansion in the sky


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway
Down the middle right & left thru
Sides square thru 4
Right & left thru
Veer left, ferris wheel
Pass thru, swing your corner, promenade
Well did I hear you say, he was meeting you today
To take you to his mansion in the sky

Delta Dawn

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

She's forty-one and her daddy still calls her "baby".
An' all the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy,
'Cause she walks around town with a suitcase in her hand,
Looking for a mysterious dark-haired man

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

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on,
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today,
To take you to his mansion in the sky?

Lyrics by Alex Harvey and Larry Collins.
Recorded by Tanya Tucker; Helen Reddy; Bette Midler.
