DOWN ON THE DELTA (Thomas "Fats" Waller (m) Sam H Stept (l) Spencer Williams (l) ) as recorded by The Boswell Sisters with The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra September 13th 1932 New York Wanna be down on the delta, Soon I know that I'll find shelter, Where a stardust cover hovers over me. Wanna be down on that bayou, Just to see the friends that I knew. Oh Mississippi, would you listen to me? Lord hear my plea, oh! Muddy waters used to be my playground When I was a tiny tot. In the bottom, how I used to play round, Lordy, what a spankin' I got! Let me live down on the delta, I don't care how much I swelter, I wanna be down on that delta, Delta, shelter me! Muddy waters used to be my playground When I was a tiny tot. In the bottom, how I used to play round, Lordy, what a spankin' I got! Well let me live on the delta, Trouble's away from my door. Let me live on the delta, Trouble's away from my door. I'm gettin' tired livin' 'way from home, Delta, shelter me! Wanna be down on that delta, Sooner loaded up on shelter Where the stars cover me. Wanna be on that bayou Where all the friends that I once knew, Lordy lordy, listen to me! Oh Mississippi, won't you hear my plea! Aaaaah! Muddy waters, night is cold, Muddy waters, hear me call, Muddy waters, I'll be comin' soon! Muddy waters, no more roamin', Muddy waters, I'll be home, Can't you hear me? Delta, shelter me! Aaaaah!
