Nitty Gritty Dirt Band — She lyrics

She-e-e
She came from the land of the cotton
A land that was nearly forgotten
By everyone

She-e-e
She worked and she slaved so hard
Big old field was her backyard
In the delta sun

Oh oh she sure could sing
Oh my she sure could sing

And he-e-e
Looked down and took a little pity
Whole town swore, he decided
He would help us out

And he-e-e
Didn't mind that she wasn't very pretty
Cause deep inside his heart he knew
She was the only one

Oh oh she sure could sing
Hey-ey she sure could sing
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/nitty-gritty-dirt-band-she-lyrics.html ]
She had faith
She had believing
She led all the people together in singing
And she prayed every night
To the Lord up above
Singing Hallelujah

They-ey
Used to walk, singing songs by the river
Even when she knew for sure
She'd have to go away

She-e-e
Never knew what a life was to give her
Never had to worry about it
For one single day

Oh my she sure could sing
Oh yeah she sure could sing

She was singing, singing Hallelujah

And she-e-e
She came from the land of the cotton
A land that was nearly forgotten
By everyone

She-e-e
She worked and she slaved so hard
The big old field was her backyard
In the delta sun

Oh oh she sure could sing
Yeah-ah she sure could sing
Oh yeah she sure could sing
Yeah-ah she sure could sing-ing-ay-ay
