Della Mae - Sweet Verona Lyrics


(C. Woodsmith)

Verona left when she was only 16
She gave no reason but needing to fly
She joined up with a traveling band, and lady luck she took her hand
Left all of her demons behind

She wove her unabashed story
All throughout the south
Verona she carried the truth of a child
She was a gypsy queen, her hair a raven sheen
She made love so strong and wild

Now they’re a bringing her home
Sweet Verona
Got her very own box in which to lay
Now they’re a bringing her home
From Louisiana
Hallelujah lord she’s home to stay

I kept the postcards that she sent me
She passed through our way only once more.
When Mama died she stood just outside the church,
But she was gone when I ran out the door.

Now they’re a bringin her home
Sweet Verona
Got her very own box in which to lay
Now they’re a bringing her home
From Louisiana
Hallelujah lord she’s home to stay

Don’t know how she died, they said they found her that way
Covered in jewels that she bought at the pawn
They said her fire burned so bright, that it
It kept her alight, and it burned ‘till she was gone

Now they’re a bringin her home
Sweet Verona
Got her very own box in which to lay
Now they’re a bringing her home
From Louisiana
Hallelujah lord she’s home to stay
