Thoughts & Meanings

Delta Lady cover Delta Lady by Leon Russell

Id like to correct some of the lyrics for one thing. Leon wrote this for Rita Coolidge. She wasn't worthy of him. He also wrote Hummingbird for her, which BB King made famous...It should have been me...just sayin'

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.

I think Leon meant that, whomever he wrote the song for was more enthralled with his image as a rock star than with him as a real person. The tophat on his head , which was his iconic regalia back then, was all that she saw. I think he was pretty sick of the games by the time he wrote this song. These type of songs are usually a hit because so many people can relate to the story line. Leon rules by the way...
