DELTA DAWN (Alex Harvey & Larry Collins)
----------------------------------------
[I got this from some sheet music I had lying around; it's probably
 transcribed from the Helen Reddy version.  I haven't heard either hers
 or Tanya Tucker's in years.  I think, at least in Tucker's version, it
 modulates up a whole step for the end of the song.  I'm not sure what
 key it really should be in; I put it in G because it's easy.  (The music
 I had was in F, but F sucks.)  I'm also not sure of the placement of
 verses, choruses, etc.]
[Each chord is half a measure, except two chords joined by a hyphen
 (e.g. "G - D" are a half-measure _total_.]

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

      G                 F                       G    G
She's forty-one and her daddy still calls her "baby"
G                    F                     G     G
All the folks around Brownsville say she's crazy
           C      -     E/B         Am   -   D7     G     G
'Cause she walks around town with a suitcase in her hand
G             F                      G    G
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

etc...
