Motherless child

African-America

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,
A long way from my home,
A long way from my home.

Motherless child sees a hard time,
A long way from home.

Sometimes I feel like freedom is near,
A long way from my home.

Sometimes I feel like I’m almost done,
A long way from my home.

Sometimes I wish that I could fly,
Like a bird up in the sky.
