orphan girl lyrics – kasey chambers

(originally by gillian welch)
(feat. shane nicholson)

i am an orphan on god’s highway
but i’ll share my travels 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 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
