Orphan Girl

Gillian Welch

capo on 1st fret
All chords represent hand position, not the key
Song is in the key of G#
I am an orphan
On God's highway
But I'll share my troubles
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
(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
 I am an orphan girl
 I  am an orphan girl
