Delia's Gone

Delia, oh Delia, Delia all my life
If I hadn't shot poor Delia down
I'd have made that girl my wife
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

I went up to Memphis
Look for Delia there
I found her in her parlour
I tied her to a chair
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

Now Delia she was trifling
Lord knows that girl was mean
Got an evil, made me want to run, and
Get my sub-machine
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

First time I shot Delia
I shot her in the side
I hate to see her suffer there
With a second shot she died
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone

Jailer, jailer
Jailer I can't sleep
All around my cell I hear the sound
Of Delia's feet
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone
