LYRIC

Motherless Children

Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a hard time
All that weepin’, all that lyin’
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
When your mother is gone
Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
When your mother is gone
Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
See your mother by-and-by
Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
‘Cause your mother is gone

Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
See your mother by-and-by
Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
‘Cause your mother is gone
Hush little baby, now don’t you cry
‘Cause your mother is gone
