(WHEN IT'S) DARKNESS ON THE DELTA (Levinson / Neiburg / Symes) Ted Fio Rito & His Orch. (vocal: Muzzy Marcellino) - 1933 Chick Bullock & His Orch. - 1933 Country All Stars - 1953 Don Lanphere - 1995 When it's darkness on the delta That's the time my heart is light, When it's darkness on the delta Let me linger in the shelter of the night. Fields of cotton all around me, Darkies singin' sweet and low,** Lord I'm lucky that you found me Where the muddy Mississippi waters flow. Lounging on the levee, List'nin' to the nightingales way up above, Laughter on the levee, no one's heart is heavy, All God's chillun got someone to love. When it's darkness on the delta, Only heaven is in sight, When it's darkness on the delta, let me linger in the shelter of the night. **Alternate line: "Folks are singin' sweet and low"
