A preliminary search of the Internet has found nothing

Can you give more details, please?

Found information about a song called Betty Lorraine (Betty Lou) by Johnny Horton through a google search, but no lyrics.

I was able to transcribe this much from a sound sample. It's a waltz:

BETTY LORRAINE (BETTY LOU) - Excerpt
Johnny Horton

The girl I love is waiting where the delta kisses the sea.
The pine trees sway with the evening tide. That's where she's waiting for me.
Her smile's as soft as a velvet rose*. Her heart's as gay as champagne.
Her hair is as black as a raven, my beautiful Betty Lorraine.

Her eyes they shine like the mornin' star. Her lips are as warm as the rain....


*[or "a robin's breast" in one version]
