Orphan Girl Lyrics

(Gillian Welch)

I am a orphan
On God's highway
But I'll share my troubles
If you go my way.

I have no mother
No father no sister
No brother
I am an orphan girl.

I have had friendships
Pure and golden
But the ties of kinship
I have not known them.

I know no mother
No father, no sister
No brother
I am an orphan girl.

But when he calls me
I will be able
To meet my family
At God's table.

I'll meet my mother
My father, my sister
My brother
No more an orphan girl.

Blessed savior
Make me willing
And walk beside me
Until I'm with them.

Be my mother
My father, my sister
My brother
I am an orphan girl.

Be my mother
My father, my sister
My brother
I am an orphan girl.

I am an orphan girl...
