Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Wanderin' round
From door to door
They don't have
No place to go
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Some people say
Your sister will do
When your mother's dead
Some people say
Your sister will do
When your mother's dead

Some people say
Your sister will do
Soon as she marries
Turn her back on you
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Some people say
Your auntie will do
When your mother's dead
Some people say
Your auntie will do
When your mother's dead

Some people say
Your auntie will do
Make a start
Then prove untrue
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Your husband may do
The best he can
When your mother's dead
Your husband may do
The best he can
When your mother's dead

Your husband may do
The best he can
But your husband
Don't understand
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Jesus will be
A father to you
When your mother's dead
Jesus will be
A father to you
When your mother's dead

Jesus will be
A father to you
Through pain and sorrows
He'll lead you through
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead
I say motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Wanderin' round
From door to door
They don't have
No place to go
Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead

Motherless children
Have a hard time
When their mother's dead
