motherless children lyrics – sandy denny

motherless children have a hard time when mother’s gone
motherless children have a hard time when mother’s gone
father will do the best he can, he don’t always understand
motherless children have a hard time when mother’s gone

mother told me i must obey when mother’s gone
mother told me i must obey when mother’s gone

mother told me i must obey that religion have it’s way
mother told me i must obey when mother’s gone

mother told me i must prey when mother’s gone
mother told me i must prey when mother’s gone
mother told me i must prey get my feet in jesus’s way
mother told me i must prey when mother’s gone
