ORPHAN GIRL
(Gillian Welch)

I am an orphan girl 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.

I think Almo Sounds used to have the whole thing on line, but I can't find it now. Here is a Real Audio clip courtesy of CDNow

Thanks Frank and Dale. I have never been able to get Real Audio working - if anyone knows of another brand of RA player I'll give that a try.

Regards
John

Saw Arlo Guthrie a couple months ago. In the second set one of his daughters came out and sang and played with him. It was quite delightful. She did Orphan Girl almost as plaintively as Gillian. She apologized and said she used to be normal and was all set to go to college last year and really hadn't grown up with aspirations fo becoming a folk singer. She was also much better to look at than Arlo. In fact looking at the two of them, I think some DNA testing may be in order ;-)
