Then someone wrote a song called the Sharecroppers Daughter. Here it is


Sharecropper’s Daughter
David Harper & Channing Coker ©2010

I remember everything about her
Every little line on her life-weathered face
Her soft brown eyes as she looked into my soul
Everybody knows she made the world a better place
Mama says she found her first, but she found mama
It was a God thing I think... family destiny

Mattie Lu gave a lot more than what she took from this old world
So much love came from nothing as a sharecropper’s daughter
Mattie Lu taught me most of life’s greatest lessons
And how to live as she did and how to rise above it all
From the life that she first came from, that’s what taught her…
She was a sharecropper’s daughter…

She made me and everyone feel special
And to this day I’m in awe of that skill
No one else in the room ever mattered
But the two of us, and we could talk until…
I could not keep my young eyes open anymore
And I’d drift away… like a babe

Chorus

And she’ll always have my back
I can see her in that hat
On her way to church each and every Sunday
The only time I made her cry
Was when I had to say goodbye
Be strong, move on….

Chorus

Written 3/17/10 based on the Coker family story
Recorded 5/30/10 Dave’s Cave II Nashville, TN

Channing Coker: Lead and Backup Vocals
Jon Conley: acoustic guitar, mandolin
David Harper: acoustic bass

Produced by David Harper

Book written by Billy Henderson
