crazy southern women in big, floppy hats...

"Delta Dawn"
delta dawn

She's forty-one and her daddy still calls 'er "baby"
All the folks 'round Brownsville say she's crazy
'cause she walks downtown with her suitcase in her hand
Lookin' 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
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-meetin' you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky-eye?

I heard this on the radio coming home from work yesterday and proceeded to scream sing it until J forbid another note...
now we have to go to Walmart tonite and see real Delta Dawns....
