#5. Sing the Delta a love song for me!
Let it rock that old cradle and roll on out to the sea!
I've been East, I've been West and North ~
from that sweetness I just can't ever divorce;
Sing the Delta a love song for me!!!!
#4. You give it all just the way your Daddy does,
you both got your demons but they're cloaked in love.
And I know that life's puttin' your callin' to the test,
but you've got something that sets you right up 'longside
the very best.
So take that heart good as Heaven ever made
and that voice that lays like August in the shade,
and sing the Delta a love song for me.
#3. Sing the Delta a love song for me!
Lay it down on that river; let it roll on out to sea.
The Delta lived in my momma's voice and in her hands;
it's a language my spirit understands.
Sing the Delta a love song for me!
#2. It's the land where the cotton used to grow,
that owns a piece of my heart and soul.
It's where my people on both sides, going back
eked out a living farmin' and fillin' cotton sacks.
Dad took us West when I was a little child,
but it's in my blood, flowing strong and wild ~
sing the Delta a love song for me?
#1. So you're heading down a Southern way,
Passing thru the Delta sometime today
In my mind, pictures line the walls
of a place I used to know and vividly recall.
I love you so much, and you sure sing good,
it would mean so much to me if you would
sing the Delta a love song for me.
