Lyrics

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Long way from my home
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Oh, sometimes I wish I could fly
Fly like a bird up in the sky
Sometimes I wish I could fly
Like a bird up in the sky
Closer to my home

Motherless children have a hard time
Motherless children have-a such a hard time
Motherless children have such a really hard time
A long way from home

Sometimes I feel like freedom is near
Sometimes I feel like freedom is here
Sometimes I feel like freedom is so near
But we’re so far from home

Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Baby, Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child
Long way from my home

Sometimes I feel like it gets closer now
Sometimes I feel like the kingdom is at hand
Sometimes I feel like kingdom is now
But we’re so far from home
