‘“Delia’s Gone” Event Occurred

In Savannah, an argument between two teenagers turned deadly as Moses “Coony” Houston shot and mortally wounded Delia Green. “Coony” apparently claimed Green was “his girl” while she objected. The incident inspired the popular song “Delia’s Gone,” a.k.a. “Delia,” “All I Have is Gone,” and “All I Got Done Gone.” (Item contributed by John Garst, University of Georgia.)
