Motherless Children

print

Motherless children have a hard time when their mother is dead
Motherless children have a hard time when their mother is dead
See them wander from door to door
Lord, they’ve got no place to go
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

Father will do the best he can when your mother’s dead
Father will do the best he can when your mother’s dead
Father will do the best he can
Some things your father can’t understand
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

When your mother’s dead
When your mother’s dead, Lord
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

When your mother’s dead
When your mother’s dead, Lord
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

Sister will do the best she can when your mother’s dead
Sister will do the best she can
No way she’ll leave you for another man
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

When your mother’s dead
When your mother’s dead, Lord
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead

When your mother’s dead
When your mother’s dead
Nobody wants you
Nobody needs you
Nobody loves you like your mother can, when your mother’s dead
