Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Allemande left allemande thar go forward two and then
Men swing in make a back up star
Shoot that star full around
Pull partner by, left allemande and weave the ring you fly
She's forty-one, but her daddy still calls her "baby"
Turn thru, left allemande and promenade with this lady
She walks down town with a suitcase in her hand
Looking for a mysterious dark haired man


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads lead right and circle to a line
Move up and back, pass thru in time
Tag the line, all turn in, go up and back, then box the gnat
Right & left thru and turn the girl like that, star thru
Square thru 3 hands around the land
Swing her, boys, left allemande and promenade the land
In her younger days they called her "Delta Dawn"
The prettiest girl you ever laid eyes on

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.
