Delta Lady ['96 Version]
by Joe Cocker



Woman of the country now that I found you
Longing in your soft and fertile delta
And I whisper sighs to satisfy the longin'
For the warm and tender shelter of my body

Oh, you're my, yes you're my, delta lady
Yes, your my, need oh my, delta lady

Please don't ask how many times I found you
Standing wet and naked in the garden
And I think of the days
And different ways that I held you
We were closely touchin', yes our heart was beatin'

Oh you're my, yes your my, delta lady
Tell you my, be oh my, delta lady

Oh, when I'm home again in England
I think of you, love
(Think about you, oh, I think about you)
Cause, I love you, love

There are concrete mountains in the city
An pretty city women live inside them
Tell you, yet it seems, the city scene is lackin' you
I'm so glad you're waitin' for me in the country

Oh you're mine, yes you're my, delta lady
Tell ya my, need oh my, delta lady
(Yeah, you are)
Tell ya mine, yes you're my, delta lady

Oh, you're my, need oh my, delta lady, yeah
Tell you mine, yes you're my, delta lady

Oh, you're mine.
