"Orphan Mae" as written by and Laura Veirs....
I don't know where I come from but I know it's a place here on earth
Somewhere in a desert near a mountain was the place of my birth

If you could tell me I would cry if you could tell me
I would fly there if you could tell me my oh my my oh my

Somewhere out there in the blossoms of the cactus
I lost my mare walked up a ridge and at the top
I saw her running off I don't know where

If you could tell me I would cry if you could tell me
I would fly there if you could tell me my oh my my oh my

The naked sun she burns me down she turns my flesh to this dark brown
Won't someone please give me a place to go I assure you I don't ever ever know

If you could tell me I would cry if you could tell me
I would fly there if you could tell me my oh my my oh my
