Motherless Children - Lyrics

Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Whoa, motherless children have a hard time
All that weepin' and all that cryin', Lord
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Tell the truth

Papa do best he can
When your mother is gone (Mother is gone)
Papa do the best he can
When your mother is gone (Mother is gone)
Papa do the best he can
So many little things that a man just don't understand, Lord
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone (Mother is gone)

People say a sister will do
When your mother is gone (Mother is gone)
People say a sister will do
When your mother is gone (Mother is gone)
You know, people say a sister will do
But she'll get married, turn her back on you, yeah
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone (Mother is gone)

They have a hard time (Hard time)
Don't you know that they have a hard time (Hard time)
Yeah-hey, hey-hey (Hard time)
Hey-hey-hey, it's a lonely crime (Hard time)
And you know what I'm talkin' about, now (Hard time)
They have a hard time (Hard time)
