Love Child - Diana Ross & the Supremes    1968


#1.
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,
  F              E7
a hurt, scorned...  rejected.

CHORUS:
Am             G
Love child...  never meant to be.
F              E
Love child...  born in poverty.
Am             G
Love child...  never meant to be.
F              E
Love child...  take a look at me.

#2.
  Am                        G          D       Am
I started my life...  in an old, cold, rundown tenement slum (tenement slum).
   G               D          Am
My father left, he never even married Mom.
  C#m7                C
I shared the guilt my Mama knew,
D              F             E
so afraid that others knew I had no name.

CHORUS:#2.
Bm
 This love we're contemplatin',
C
 Is worth the pain of waitin'.
Am
 We'll only end up hatin',
F             E7
 The child we may be creatin'.

Am             G
Love child...  never meant to be.
F              E
Love child...  scorned by society.
Am             G 
Love child...  always second best.
F              E
Love child...  different from the rest.

Am                     G     D
  (Hold on, Hold on)...Mmmm, baby.
Am                     G     D
  (Hold on, Hold on)...Mmmm, baby.

#2.
Am                        G          D
I started school...  in a worn, torn dress that
    Am
somebody threw out.
  G               D               Am
I knew the way it felt, to always live in doubt,
   C#m7           C
to be without the simple things,
D            F                       E
so afraid my friends would see...the 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           E7
the name of shame I've been wearin'.

Am                        G
Love child, Love child... never quite as good,
F                    E
afraid... ashamed... misunderstood.

Outro:
    Am          G           F            E            Am
But I'll always love you....I'll, always love you hoo hoo.

          G            F                    E            Am
  you hoo hoo, you hoo hoo... I'll,  always love you hoo hoo.
             G                              F                        E
