Motherless Child

by Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Lois Vaughan (March 27, 1924 – April 3, 1990) was an American jazz singer, described by Scott Yanow as having "one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century."




Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
(Sometimes)
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child

A long ways from home
A long ways from home
Do believe us?
A long ways from home
A long ways from home

Yes, sometimes I feel like a motherless child
(Why?)
Why? 'Cause nothin' ever happens
(Nothin')

Well, nothin' good
(So what's good?)
You know to have a ball, man
(You sick?)
No

(Hungry?)
No, man
I just had myself a whole mess of black-eyed peas and rice
(Long way, long way)

(See what I mean?)
I did; I am a long ways from home
But things could be worse, sure could
