SHE
Gram Parsons


She she came from the land of the cotton

Land that was nearly forgotten by everyone

And She worked and she slaved so hard

A big old field was her back yard in the delta sun

Oh, but she sure could sing

Oh, she sure could sing

Then He looked down and he took a little pity

The whole town swore he decided

He'd help her some

And he didn't mind if she wasn't very pretty

For deep inside his heart he knew

She was the only one

Oh but she sure could sing

Yea she sure could sing

She had faith, she had believing

She led all the people together in singing

And she prayed every night to the lord up Ebove

Hallelujah oh hallelujah

They use to walk singing songs by the river

Even when she knew for sure

She had to go away

And she never knew what her life had to give her

And never had to worry about it

For one single day

My but she sure could sing

Oh yes sure could sing

She had faith, she had believing

Led all the people together in singing

And she prayed every night to the lord up above

Hallelujah oh hallelujah

She she came from the land of the cotton

Land that was nearly forgotten by everyone

And She worked and she slaved so hard

A big old field was her back yard in the delta sun

Oh, but she sure could sing

My, she sure could sing

Oh, but she sure could sing

Oh, but she sure could sing
