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
