NOBODY'S CHILD by Hank Snow
Transcribed by David Hackford (email@example.com)
(E)I was slowly passing (A)an orphans home one (A7)day
(E)And stopped there for a moment (B7)just to watch the children play
(E)Alone a boy was standing (A)and when I asked him why
(E)He turned with eyes (A)that could not see (B7)and he began to (E)cry.
(E)I'm nobody's child, (A)I'm nobody's child
(B7)I'm like a flower just growing (E)wild
No mommy's kisses (A)and no daddy's smiles
(B7)Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's (E)child.
People come for children, and take them for their own
But they all seem to pass me by, and I am left alone.
I know they's like to take me but when they see I'm blind
They always pick some other child, and I am left behind.
No mommy's arms to hold me, or soothe me when I cry
Sometimes it gets so lonely here I wish that I could die.
I'd walk the streets of heaven where all the blind can see
And just like all the other kids there'd be a home for me.
