She

Lyrics: Gram Parsons, Chris Ethridge
Music: Gram Parsons, Chris Ethridge

Played by Mark Karan with Phil Lesh & Friends in 2012.

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 above
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
