Delia's Gone Tony shot his Delia, 'Twas on one Christmas night; First thing she did Was hang her head and die. cho: Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone, one more round, Delia's gone, one more round. Sent for the doctor, The doctor come too late. Sent for the minister To lay out Delia straight. Delia, oh Delia, Where you been so long ? Everybody's talkin' about Poor Delia's dead and gone. Rubber-tired buggy, Rubber-tired hack Took Delia to the graveyard, Ain't gonna bring her back. Reason that he shot her She curesed him an awfl curse If he hadn't of shot her She would have cursed him worse. Recorded by Blind Blake, Johnny Cash etc. DT #657 Laws I5 RG
