Delta Lady Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Woman of the country
Now, I found you
Longing in your soft
And fertile delta
Verse 2
And I whisper sighs
To satisfy your longing
For the warm and tender
Shelter of my body
Verse 3
Oh, you're mine delta lady
Your mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Verse 4
Please don't ask
How many times I found you
Standing wet
And naked in the garden
Verse 5
And I think of the days
And the different ways I held you
I held you closely to me
Yes, our heart was beating
Verse 6
Oh, you're mine delta lady
You're mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Verse 7
When I'm home again in England
And I'm thinking of you love
Because, I love you
Yes, I do, I love you
Verse 8
There are concrete
Mountains in the city
And pretty city women
Live inside them
Verse 9
And yet it seems
The city scene is lacking
I'm so glad you're waiting
For me in the country
Verse 10
Oh, you're mine delta lady
Darling, you're mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Verse 11
[Incomprehensible]
Verse 12
Oh, you're mine delta lady
Darling, you're mine, be all mine
Delta lady
Verse 13
[Incomprehensible]

I also read that he wrote it for Claudia Lennear, the beautiful, black backup singer. That makes more sense to me but for some reason it usually is said about Rita. I can't find anything where Leon actually said who inspired it. Maybe Rita just said she was the muse. - Comment by cherilb 1 year ago
