This song is a variation of a black spiritual song about the Second Coming of Jesus riding a chariot. The "She" refers to the chariot (cars, ships and many means of transport can be referred to as "she"). In the 1850's the lyrics were changed by railroad (railway) workers and becvame just a fun song by changing the "she" into a girl everybody's waiting. Today it is considered to be a kid's song. The original lyrics of the song were:

O, who will drive the chariot When she comes? O, who will drive the chariot When she comes? O, who will drive the chariot, O, who will drive the chariot, O, who will drive the chariot When she comes?
King Jesus, he'll be driver when she comes, When she comes . . . .
She'll be loaded with bright Angels When she comes . . . .
She will neither rock nor totter, When she comes . . . .
She will run so level and steady, When she comes . . . .
She will take us to the portals, When she comes . . . .
