"Motherless Child" as written by and Traditional,.....
Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
A long way from home
True believer
A long way from home

Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
Sometimes I wish I could fly,
Like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I wish I could fly,
Like a bird in the sky
Little closer to home

Motherless children
Have a real hard time
Motherless children
Have a such a real hard time
So long so long so long

Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel
Like a motherless child
So far away

Sometimes I feel
Like freedom is near
Sometimes I feel
Like freedom is near
But we're so far away

Sometimes I feel
Like it's close at hand
Sometimes I feel
Like the freedom is near
But we're so far from home

Sometimes, sometimes, |
Sometimes
So far, so far, so far,
So far mama from you, so far
