After using this gold mine of a web site, I figured it was time to give
back some.
I pretty much worked out all the songs on Welch's album, just need to spend
some time writtin'em out. Here's the first.  CR


ORPHAN GIRL  by Gillian Welch

 
capo on 1st fret
All chords represent hand position, not the key
Song is in the key of G#

        G
I am an orphan
         D
On God's highway
                  G
But I'll share my troubles
          C
You go my way

          G
I have no mother
   D          G
No father, no sister
   C
No brother
G       D       G
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

(inst. break)

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

(inst. break)

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

Be my mother
My father, my sister
My brother
G       D        
I am an orphan girl
G        D      C      G
I  am an orphan girl
