I´m Nobody´s Child

Song Author Mel Foree og Cy Coben Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I was slowly passing an [F]orphan's home one day
And[C] stopped there for a moment [D7]just to watch the children [G7]play   
A [C]lonely boy was standing and [F]when I asked him why
He [C]turned with eyes that could not see and [G7]he began to [C]cry  

I'm nobody's child I´m [C7]nobody's [F]child
[G7]I´m like a flower just growing [C]wild
No mommy´s kisses no [C7]daddy's [F]smile
[G7]Nobody wants me I'm nobody's [C]child

People come for children and [F]take them for their own
But [C]they all seem to pass me by [D7]and leave me all [G7]alone
I [C]know they'd like to take me but [F]when they see I'm blind
They [C]always take some other child and I [G7]am left [C]behind

No mommy´s arms to hold me or [F]sooth me when I cry
Some[C]times it gets so lonely here [D7]I wish that I could [G7]die   
I´d [C]walk the streets of heaven [F]where all the blind can see
And [C]just like all the other kids there´d [G7]be a home for[C] me  

( Next two verses are spoken: )

[C]I just can´t seem to figure out
[F]Why the folks all pass me by
[C]Cause I know that it´s true that God takes
[D7]Little blind children with Him in the [G7]sky   

And [C]they tell me I´m so pretty
And [F]they seem to like my big curls of gold
But [C]then they take some other little child
And I´m [G7]left here all[C] alone

I'm nobody's child I´m [C7]nobody's [F]child
[G7]I´m like a flower just growing [C]wild
No mommy´s kisses no [C7]daddy's [F]smile
[G7]Nobody wants me I'm nobody's [C]child

I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day
And stopped there for a moment just to watch the children play
A lonely boy was standing and when I asked him why
He turned with eyes that could not see and he began to cry

I'm nobody's child I´m nobody's child
I´m like a flower just growing wild
No mommy´s kisses no daddy's smile
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

People come for children and take them for their own
But they all seem to pass me by and leave me all alone
I know they'd like to take me but when they see I'm blind
They always take some other child and I am left behind

No mommy´s arms to hold me or sooth 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

( Next two verses are spoken: )

I just can´t seem to figure out
Why the folks all pass me by
Cause I know that it´s true that God takes
Little blind children with Him in the sky

And they tell me I´m so pretty
And they seem to like my big curls of gold
But then they take some other little child
And I´m left here all alone

I'm nobody's child I´m nobody's child
I´m like a flower just growing wild
No mommy´s kisses no daddy's smile
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child
