Thread Name: Lyr Add: Nobody's Child (from Hank Snow)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Nobody's Child

Recorded by Hank Snow

As [D] I was slowly passing [D7] by an [G] orphan's home one day,
I [A7] thought I'd stop a little while just to watch the children [D] play.
Alone, a boy was [D7] standing, and [G] when I asked him why,
He [A7] turned with eyes that could not see and this was his re-[D] ply.


I'm [G] nobody's child, [A7] nobody's [D] child.
[A7] I'm like a flower, just growing [D] wild.
No mommy's [D7] kisses and no [G] daddy's smiles,
Nobody [A7] wants me, I'm nobody's [D] child.

People come for children to take them for their own,
But they seem to pass me by and why I never know.
I know they want to take me, but when they see I'm Blind,
They always pick some other child and I am left behind.

Repeat Chorus>>>

No mommy's arms to hold me and soothe me when I cry,
Sometimes I feel so lonely, I wish that I could die.
I'll walk the street of heaven where all the blind can see,
Then I'll be like other kids, There'll be a place for me.

Repeat Chorus>>>
