Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Long way from my home

Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Little closer to my home

Motherless children have a real hard time
Motherless children have-a real hard time
Motherless children have such a real hard time
A long way from home

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Long way from my home

Sometimes I feel like freedom is near
Oh, sometimes I feel like freedom is here
Sometimes I feel like freedom is near
But we're so far from home

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

Motherless children have a real hard time
Motherless children have-a real a hard time
Motherless children have a really hard time
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
So far, so far, so far, so far, so far, so far, so far
Mama, from you
So far

Motherless children have a real hard time
Motherless children have-a real hard time
Motherless children have a real hard time
So far from home
