Delia Gone

Delia Gone was originally recorded by Burl Ives and famously covered by Johnny Cash. The lyric I'm singing here was recorded in the 50s by Acker Bilk and is not nearly as bleak as the Ives/Cash version. In fact, with the Dixieland chords, it almost ends up jolly... for a tale of murder.
