Songtekst

Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been?
Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been? ....

Tell me mister have you seen
The girl they call the Delta Queen in New Orleans - honey honey
He said, I know the girl you mean
She's singing at the Delta Queen down seventeen - honey honey

And when I saw her there, silver gaslight on her hair
I didn't mind the smoky room or the smell of stale perfume
I only know that she's a fallen angel on her knees
A woman tired of being alone, the one that I'm now taking home, oh


Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been?
Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been? ....

She left her home in Baton Rouge
She only had one pair of shoes, what could she lose - honey honey
The time had come for her to chose
Between the good life and the blues, what could she lose - honey honey

I only know that she's a fallen angel on her knees
A woman tired of being alone, the one that I'm now taking home, oh

Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been?
Delta Queen, honey honey, where you been? ....
