Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for a while
And if you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

If you're blue don't cry just wander right downtown
You can find your delta mama waitin' there
I thought you knew that I would never let you down
I can ease your mind and take away all your cares

Come away with me, my little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for a while
If you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

If the grass grows brown don't you hang your head too low
There ain't no need for you to sit and pine
If you'll just ask around then I'm sure someone will know
Just exactly what it takes to get you back to feelin' fine

Come away with me, my little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for a while
If you stay, you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

Well, if you don't know by now what I've been tryin' so hard to say
Well, my delta boy I'm afraid you're up too tight
But you take it slow and somehow you come meandering out my way
And I'll take you in my arms and make it right

Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for a while
If you stay you'll see I can bring you lots of joy
I can turn those little teardrops to a smile

Well, come away with me, my little delta boy
I wanna be your delta mama for a while
This song is from the album "Drama Falls Like Teardrops".
