I’m Nobody’s Child
recorded by Hank Snow
written by Mel Foree and Cy Coben
 
C F
I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day
C D7 G7
And stopped there for a moment just to watch the children play
C F
A lonely boy was standing and when I asked him why
C G7 C
He turned with eyes that could not see and he began to cry

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

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

F
No mommy’s arms to hold me or sooth me when I cry
C D7 G7
Sometimes it gets so lonely here I wish that I could die
C F
I’d walk the streets of heaven where all the blind can see
C G7 C
And just like all the other kids there’d be a home for 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 G7
Little blind children with Him in the sky

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

Repeat #2
