Lyrics

I lost my heart in New Orleans
To a tall glass of whiskey called the Delta King
Gambled away my wealth and dreams
I lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King
Lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King

Packed up my life in a Bud Light box
Picked up all the quarters I could come across
The pay phone at midnight’s such a lonesome ring
Delta King Come back home

I lost my heart in New Orleans
To a tall glass of whiskey called the Delta King
Gambled away my wealth and dreams
I lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King
Lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King

I once swore that I’d never get caught
But hairpins were falling to the break of dawn
He called to me to fold my wings
He said Delta Queen you are home

I lost my heart in New Orleans
To a tall glass of whiskey called the Delta King
Gambled away my wealth and dreams
I lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King
Lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King

The dumpster is filled with your memories
By Thursday morning you’ll be history
To the one who I once thought was King
Delta King go on home

I lost my heart in New Orleans
To a tall glass of whiskey called the Delta King
Gambled away my wealth and dreams
I lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King
Lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King

Lost it all to the voodoo of the Delta King
