Darkness on the Delta
When it's darkness on the delta That's the time my heart is light When it's darkness on the delta Let me linger in the shelter of the night Fields of cotton all around me Darkies singin' sweet and low Lord, I'm lucky that you found me Where the muddy Mississippi waters flow Lounging on the levee Listenin' to the nightingales way up above Laughter on the levee No one's heart is heavy All God's children got someone to love When it's darkness on the delta Only heaven is in sight When it's darkness on the delta Let me linger in the shelter of the night
