Motherless child really sees it hard

Motherless child really sees it hard,
when mother is gone, when she`s gone.
Motherless child really sees it hard,
when mother is gone, when she`s gone.
They`ll go wand`rin` from door to door,
They don`t have nowhere to go.
Motherless child really sees it hard,
when mother is gone, well when she`s gone.
Father will do the best he can,
when mother is gone.
Father will do the best he can,
when mother is gone.
He will try to treat you good
But he can`t treat you like a mother would.
