Here's a couple versions of the words that people have passed to me: VERSION I: Goin' down the delta where I can have my fun. (2x) Where I can drink my white lightnin' and gamble, I can bring my baby home. Don't the delta look lonely when that evenin' sun goes down. (2x) Well, you're lookin' for your baby, don't know where she could be found. Goin' back to my usta be although that she done me wrong. (2x) Well, I think I'll have to forgive her, 'cause I'm tired of drifting through this world alone. She treat me dirty, but I love her just the same. (2x) Well, it just break my heart to hear her call some other man call her name. Now goodbye, I'm going to leave you and I won't be back no more. (2x) And my mind gets to rambling, see you in 1944. VERSION II: I'm going down to the Delta You know where I can have my fun Well I'm going back to the delta You kknow where I can have my fun Where I can drink my white light'nin and gamble Where I can bring my baby home Now don't the delta look lonesome when the Lord when the ev'nin sun go down Now don't hte delta look lonesome when the Evenin sun go down When you been lookin for your baby Don't know where he could be found BREAK He treat me dirty but I Lord don't you know I lave him just the same He treat me dirty but I love him just the same You know it just breaks my heart to hear Some other gal call his name BREAK Well now goodbye I'm going to leave you and I Said I won't be home no more Well goodbye I'm going to leave you I won't be back no more You know if I find me a good man Lord said I won't be back no more Version II transcribed from "I'm In Love" by Rory Block 1976 Blue Goose Records #2022
