Motherless Child (Album Version)

Motherless Child (Album Version)

Dave Van Ronk

Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone.
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone.

Motherless children have such a hard time.
There's all that weepin' and all that cryin'.
Motherless children, they have such a hard time
When their mother is gone.

Father will do the best he can
When the mother is gone.
Father will do the best he can
When the mother is gone.
Father will do the best he can,
But there's so many things he just don't understand.
Motherless children, they have such a hard time
When their mother is gone.

People say a sister will do
When your mother is gone.
People say a sister will do
When your mother is gone.
People say a sister will do,
But she'll get married and turn her back on you.
Motherless children, they have such a hard time
When their mother is gone.

You may find comfort in your husband or your wife
When your mother is gone.
You may find comfort in your husband or your wife
When your mother is gone.
You may find comfort in your husband or your wife,
But you'll be your mother's child for the rest of your life.
And nobody treats you like your mother did
When your mother is gone.
