Orphan Girl

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album Wrecking Ball (1995).

This song has been covered by…
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

So 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 mother), my father (my father)
My sister (my sister), my brother
I am an orphan girl
I am an orphan girl
