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
Listenin' to the nightingales way up above
Laughter on the levee
No one's heart is heavy

All God's children 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
