Lyrics

Delia cursed Tony On one Saturday night She cursed him such a wicked curse That he sweared I'm gonna take your life (CHORUS) Delia gone One more round Delia gone The first time Tony shot Delia He let her have it in the side The second time he shot her Well, she bowed down Her head and died (CHORUS) Well, the folks sent down for the doctor That gent came on dressed in black He did everything that a doctor could do But he couldn't bring Delia back

(CHORUS) On Monday, Tony was arrested On Tuesday, his case tried The jury brought him down guilty The judge said ninety-nine years Is your time, she's gone One more round Delia gone Ninety-nine years in prison Tony laughed, judge, that's no time I got me a brother down in New Orleans Serving nine hundred ninety and nine The joke's on you, judge Delia gone, yeah, she's gone Now old Tony's cooling in the jailhouse Drinking from a silver cup Poor Delia's out in the graveyard Trying her ding dong best to get up But she's out, boy One more round Delia's gone Oh, mama, oh, mama Tell me, how can I sleep When all around my bed side I keep hearing Delia's feet Ma, she's transparent One more round Delia's gone Yeah, old Tony trumped Out to the graveyard And he looked right in Old Delia's face He said, Gal, as much as I love you I just cannot take your place Delia's gone One more round Have another, fellas She's not coming back Delia gone One more round Delia's gone
