"Motherless Children" as written by . Traditional, Eric Patrick Clapton and Carl Radle....
The motherless children
Have a hard time when mother is dead
The motherless children
Have a hard time when mother's dead
They don't have anywhere to go
Walking around from door to door
Motherless children have a hard time
With mother dead

Well father says that he can do
After mother gone away
Father says that he can do
After mother gone away
Father don't do so many things
Those motherless children have a hard time
After mother gone
Motherless children
Don't know where to go

Mother told a child
Someday I'll meet you
Some day when we are dead
Mother told a child
I'll meet after we are dead
She told a child
Someday I'll meet you
I can't desert you
Motherless children have a hard time
After mother has gone

Motherless children
Have a hard time when she's gone
Motherless children
Have a hard time when she's gone
They don't have anywhere to go
The wander form door to door
Motherless children
Have a hard time
