“She’ll be coming round the mountain” is a traditional folk song, that is commonly sung as a children’s song in our days. The song is derived from a Christian song known as “When the Chariot Comes”. During the 19th century, the song spread through Appalachia in the Eastern U.S.A., where the lyrics were changed into their current form.
In fact, the song is supposed to refer to the Second Coming of Christ and subsequent Rapture, with the ‘she’ referring to the chariot that the returning Christ is imagined as driving. By time, the song lost its religious meaning and started appearing in collections of children’s music.
