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
