Motherless Child Lyrics

Artist: Eric Clapton
Album: From The Cradle

If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm.
If I mistreat you girl, I sure don't mean no harm.
Well, I'm a motherless child; I don't know right from
wrong.

Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last
night?
Please tell me pretty mama, honey where'd you stay last
night?
Well, you didn't come home till the sun was shining bright.

I had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled.
Had to go so far girl to get my ham bones boiled.
Well, he's had a lotta women, gonna let my ham bones burn.

Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done.
Well, I did more for you, girl, than your daddy ever done.
Well, I give you my jelly, he ain't give you none.

And when you see two women, always running hand in hand.
When you see two women, always running hand in hand.
You can bet your bottom dollar, one got the other one's
man.

Lord, I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking
chair.
I'm going to the river, get me a tangled rocking chair.
And if the blues overtake me, gonna rock away from here.
