Circle left
I wandered far away
From the place where I was born and raised

Left allemande your corner turn your partner by the right
Girls back in a wrong way thar
Slip the clutch and go left allemande
Swing your own and promenade
I got the Delta dirt
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru get to 4 now
Around the corner lady dosado
Swing thru and then the boys you run
Chain down the line and turn the girls
Do a dixie derby go, girls trade and then
1/2 tag, swing the corner, promenade
I got the Delta dirt
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Delta Dirt

I wandered far away from the place
Where I was born and raised
I suffered through the Oklahoma dry lands
And through New York City's cold and rainy days

And now these dried up bones of mine are powerful thirsty
Just once again to feel them Mississippi rains

Lord, I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins
In my veins, added in my veins
(In my veins, added in my veins)

I'm goin' home this mornin' if I have to walk, run or fly
I promised me as sure as I was standin'
That I'm never, ever gonna say goodbye
'Cause this heart of mine keeps tellin' me I'm crazy
To keep on wearin' the city's ball and chain

When I got that Delta dirt Lord
Got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

Lord, New York is mighty pretty
If you don't mind what you say
But I'd take a hundred acres of black land dirt
Over Detroit, New York and L.A.

I'm goin' home to Delta mama
'Cause she's got everything
Gonna cure my aches and pains
And I got that Delta dirt, Lord
I got that black land Delta dirt down in my veins

I got it in my veins
(In my veins)
I got it in my veins
(Got it in my veins)
Lord, I got it in my veins

Lyrics by Larry Gatlin.
Recorded by The Gatlin Brothers.
