She's a Flower From the Fields of Alabama

She's a Flower From the Fields of Alabama

It was one evening long ago when the sun was sinking low
Down in Alabama neath the sunny sky
It was in the month of June when the roses were in bloom
By the roadside they would greet me passing by

cho: She's a flower from the fields of Alabama
     Take her for she loves you, yes I know
     Health and love where ever you go
     She's a blessing you'll be told
     She's a flower from the fields of Alabam

It was blessing through consent on a journey as I went
To the mother of the girl I longed to wed
As I drew near the place tears went down her rosy face
When I asked her for her daughter and she said

Standing in my cottage door, thinking of the days of yore
And my dear old wife was standing by my side
And she seemed so dear to me
In two eyes such love I see
As it was one day I heard her mother say

Recorded by Clyde Davenport -Clydeoscope: Rare & beautiful tunes
from the Cumberland plateau and the liner notes say that Clyde
learned it from Burnett and Rutherford.
