Lyrics for Motherless Child
By Eric Clapton

Mail these lyrics to a friend

If I mistreat you girl, I sure donít mean no harm.
If I mistreat you girl, I sure donít mean no harm.
Well, Iím a motherless child; I donít know right from wrong.

Please tell me pretty mama, honey whereíd you stay last night?
Please tell me pretty mama, honey whereíd you stay last night?
Well, you didnít 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, heís 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 jewelry, he ainít 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 oneís man.

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