Tucker Tanya – Delta Dawn tab
[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... - Adam Schneider
