Delia, Delia Delia, Delia, where have you been so long? Delia, Delia, everything I had is gone. The trees have left the countryside, The frost is on the ground, The birds all sing a different song, With a low and a lonesome song. With a low and a lonesome sound. Delia, Delia, where have you been so long? Delia, Delia, everything I had is gone. If we could count the falling stars, As we have done before, Or share the sound of summer rain, I'd never ask for more. I'd never ask for more. Who can tell where Delia's gone, Or why she went away, Or if she always knew that she, Would break my heart one day? Would break my heart one day? Delia, Delia aah, Delia. The song is "Delia" credited to Fred Brooks & Lester Judson. It is on RCA Victor LPM-1022, ""Mark Twain" and Other Folk Favorites", 1954 This is, perhaps, Belafonte's first album, at least of folk music. DT #657 Laws I5 JH apr00
