OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk around the corner, see saw your own
Gents star by the right one time around
Why don't you pick your partner up, star promenade
Girls roll back, allemande, weave around you go
In her younger days they called her Delta Dawn
Dosado and you promenade along
Well she walked down town with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark haired man


FIGURE    C4, unknown progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru 4 hands you'll go
Around the corner you do a dosado
Swing thru, girls circulate, boys trade
Hey boys run right, bend the line, curlique
Single circulate, boys run right, corner swing
Swing the corner lady, promenade
Well she walked down town with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark haired man

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.
