Woman of the country now I've found you
 Longing in your soft and fertile delta
And I whisper sighs to satisfy your longing 
For the warmth and tender shelter of my body
Oh you're my, yes you're my Delta Lady
Yes, you're my, me 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 days and different ways I held you
Held you closely to me, yes our heart was beating 
Oh you're my

Oh, and I'm over here in England 
But I think of you, think about you
 Because I love you

 There are concrete mountains in the city
And pretty city women live inside them
And yet it seems the city scene is lacking 
I'm so glad you're waiting for me in the country 
Oh you're my
