Tom Jones – Motherless Child lyrics

Words and music - traditional

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child

A long long way from home

A long long way from home

Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone

Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone

Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone

And I know my time's not long

I know that my time, it's not long

Sometimes I feel like I'm heaven bound

Sometimes I feel like I'm heaven bound

Sometimes I feel like I'm heaven bound

And I wear a golden crown

I wear a golden crown

Sometimes I feel like my soul is on fire

Sometimes I feel like my soul is on fire

Sometimes I feel like my soul is on fire

And I'm about to die

And I'm about to die

I'm about to die

I'm about to die

I'm about to die

I'm about to die

I'm about to die

I ain't got nobody to love me

I ain't got nobody to hold me

I ain't got nobody to squeeze me

I'm just a motherless child

I'm just a motherless child
