‘Motherless Children’ (by Blind Willie Johnson) with Jim Ridl, Lorin Cohen, Samvel Sarkisyan and feat. Raul Midón and Adam Rogers
Recorded live at the New York City Jazz Standard – April 30, 2019

Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a very hard time
When their mother is gone
Motherless children have a hard time
There’s all that weeping and all that crying
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

Father will do the best he can
When the mother is gone
Father will do the best he can
When the mother is gone
Father will do the best he can
But there’s so many things he just don’t understand
Motherless children have a hard time
When their mother is gone

People say a sister will do
When the mother is gone
People say a sister will do
When the mother is gone
People say a sister will do
But she’ll get married and turn her back to you

Motherless children…
