She came from the land of cotton
A land that was nearly forgotten
By everyone
And she...
She worked and she slaved so hard
A big ol' field was her backyard
In the delta sun
Ah, but she sure could sing
Oh She sure could sing

The he...
Looked down and he took a little pity
The whole town swore he decided
He 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
Ah, but she sure could sing
My, my she sure could sing
She had faith and she had believin'
Led all the people together in singin'
She prayed every night
To the Lord up above
Oh, hallelujah

Would walk singin' songs by the river
Even when she knew for sure
She had to go away
And she
Never knew what her life was to give her
Never had to worry about it
For one single day
Ah, but she sure could sing
My, my but she sure could sing
Oh she sure could sing
