She, she came from the land of the cotton
A land that was nearly forgotten by everyone
And she, she worked and she slaved so hard
A big old field was her backyard in the delta sun
Oh, but she sure could sing, oh yeah 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
And oh, but she sure could sing, my, my she sure could sing

She had faith and she had believin'
Led all the people together in a singin'
And she prayed every night to the Lord up above
Hallelujah, oh hallelujah

They, would walk singin' songs by the river
Even when she knew for sure, she have to go away
And she never knew what her life was to give her
Never had to worry about it for one single day
Oh, but she sure could sing, na, na but she sure could sing
Oh, but she sure could sing
