Nobody's Child Lyrics

by Hank Williams Jr.

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
I'm like a flower just growing wild
There's no mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

I was slowly passin' an orphan's home one day
And stop there for a moment just to watch the children play
Alone a boy was standin' and when I asked him why
He turned his eyes that couldn't see and he began to cry

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 that I'm blind
They always take some other child and I'm left behind

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
I'm like a flower just growing wild
There's no mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

No mother's arms to hold me or soothe me when I cry
Sometimes it gets so lonely here, I wish I could die
I walk the streets of heaven where all the blinds can see
And just like for the other kids there'd be a home for me
No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child
