Love Child  The Supremes

Love Child - Diana Ross & the Supremes 1968

[Bm] You think that I don't feel love,
[C] But what I feel for you is real love.
[Am] In other's eyes I see reflected,
a [F]hurt, scorned..[E7]. rejected.
[Am]Love child... [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child... [E]born in poverty.
[Am]Love child... [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child... [E]take a look at me.

I [Am]started my life... in an [G]old, cold, [D]rundown [Am]tenement slum (tenement slum).
My [G]father left, he [D]never even [Am]married Mom.
I [C#m7]shared the guilt my [C]Mama knew,
[D]so afraid that [F]others knew I [E]had no name.
[Bm] This love we're contemplatin',
[C] Is worth the pain of waitin'.
[Am] We'll only end up hatin',
[F] The child we [E7]may be creatin'.
[Am]Love child... [G]never meant to be.
[F]Love child... [E]scorned by society.
[Am]Love child... [G]always second best.
[F]Love child... [E]different from the rest.
[Am] (Hold on, Hold on)...[G]Mmmm, [D]baby.
[Am] (Hold on, Hold on)...[G]Mmmm, [D]baby.

[Am]I started school... in a [G]worn, torn [D]dress that
some[Am]body threw out.
I [G]knew the way it [D]felt, to always [Am]live in doubt,
to [C#m7]be without the [C]simple things,
[D]so afraid my [F]friends would see...the [E]guilt in me.
[Bm] Don't think that I don't need ya,
[C] Don't think I don't wanna please ya.
[Am] But no child of mine'll be bearin',
[F]the name of [E7]shame I've been wearin'.
[Am]Love child, Love child... [G]never quite as good,
[F]afraid... ashamed... [E]misunderstood.
But [Am]I'll always [G]love you....[F]I'll, always [E]love you hoo [Am]hoo.
I'll always [G]love you....[F]I'll, always [E]love you hoo [Am]hoo.
I'll always [G]love you....[F]I'll, always [E]love you hoo [Am]hoo.
you hoo [G]hoo, you hoo [F]hoo... I'll, always [E]love you hoo [Am]hoo.
Take a look, [G]take a look, take a look at me [F] Love child love child, [E]ohhh
[Am] I'll always [G]love you....[F]I'll, always [E]love you hoo [Am]hoo.
