The Dcrops are all in and the Gpeaches are Drotting The oDranges piled in their crA7eosote Ddumps You're Gflying them back to the DMexican border To pay all tDheir money, to A7wade back agDain

Chorus

Af

GoodGbye to my Juan, good-Dbye Rosalita AdiDos mes amigos, JesDus and Maria You Gwon't have your names when you Dride the big airplane All they will call you will A7be deportDee 2. My Father's own father, he waded that river They took all the money he made in his life My brothers and sisters come working the fruit trees And they rode the truck till they took down and died 3. Some of us are illegal, and some are not wanted Our work contracts out and we have to move on Six hundred miles to that Mexican border They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves 4. We died in your hills, we died in your deserts We died in your valleys, and died on your plains We died 'neath your trees, and we died in your bushes Both sides of the river, we died just the same 5. The sky plane caught fire over Los Gatos canyon A fireball of lightning, and shook all our hills Who are all these friends, all scattered like dry leaves? The radio says they are just deportees 6. Is this the best way we can grow our big orchards? Is this the best way we can grow our good fruit? To fall like like dry leaves, to rot on my topsoil And to be called no name, except deportee.
