IN LOVE WITH LACOLORADA II


No conoció a sus padres biológicos y no logró saber casi nada sobre quiénes pudieron haber sido, por más que lo intentó. Del primero y del cuarto álbum, dos canciones que duelen de perfección. Cabe remarcar un concepto, casi una máxima: las grandes canciones no están hechas de acordes.






Orphan Girl


I am an orphan
On God's highway
But I'll share my travels
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
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
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

No One Knows My Name



Oh my mother was just a girl seventeen
Oh my mother was just a girl seventeen
And my dad was passin' through doing things a man will do
Oh my mother was just a girl seventeen

It's a wonder that I'm in this world at all
It's a wonder that I'm in this world at all
And I have a life to claim though I really don't know my name
It's a wonder that I'm in this world at all

Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
But it's written up in the sky and I'll see it by and by
Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name

Well I had a good mother and dad just the same
Well I had a good mother and dad just the same
And they took me to their rest and they surely stood the test
Well I had a good mother and dad just the same

Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
Just another baby born to a girl lost and lorn
Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name

Now and then there's a lonesome thought in my mind
Now and then there's a lonesome thought in my mind
And on the crowded street I see a stranger's face that looks like me
Now and then there's a lonesome thought in my mind

Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
Ain't one soul in the whole world knows my name
But I'll see it by and by cause it's written up in the sky
Ain’t one soul in the whole world knows my name
