Verse
       G                                 Cadd9
Well I packed all of my things into this blanket
   Em7/G                          Dsus2
To call this year to earn coyotes fill
        Asus4                 Gadd9          Cadd9
Kiss my wife and kids goodbye choke back the quiver in my breath
    Em7                           Dsus2              Dsus2
And took my first steps into this corridor of death
       Asus4                Gadd9 Cadd9
If I’m lucky I will make it to a  drain
     Em7/G               Dsus2
With 500 of my brothers, I would share the strain
   Asus4              Gadd9 Cadd9
Of standing in this boxcar  praying for rain
         Em7                             Dsus2
It’s the only the way we will quench our thirst

Chorus
                    Cadd9  Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
G              Gmaj9       Em7/G
Growing in the California sand
                     Cadd9 Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Cadd9             Gadd9 Cadd9       Dsus2    Em7/G
We are the children of poverty     trying to a make a stand

Verse
      G                                 Cadd9
If we make it past the border, we will scatter
Em7/G                             Dsus2
Vanish just like smoke in autumn wind
       Asus4                 Gadd9 Cadd9
I will run until my color will not matter
    Em7                        Dsus2
Hopin’ I can find some work or possibly a friend
          Asus4                    Gadd9 Cadd9
There are others who have made it here
                                Em7/G                      Dsus2
They will show me how to find a job and a place to lay my head
      Asus4              Gadd9 Cadd9
And I cannot be concerned with dreams of my children
    Em7                   Dsus2
For there are 5 others in line for my bed

Chorus
                    Cadd9  Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
G              Gmaj9       Em7/G
Growing in the California sand
                     Cadd9 Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Cadd9             Gadd9 Cadd9       Dsus2    Em7/G
We are the children of poverty     trying to a make a stand


       G                           Cadd9
I will gladly pick your peaches or clean your hotel rooms
Em7/G                Dsus2
I will do the jobs American won’t do
           A7Sus4                         Gadd9 Cadd9
With their cell phones to their heads and $700   dollar shoes
Em7                             Dsus2              Dsus2
I will risk my life ‘cause it’s all I have to lose

        G                      Cadd9
Let the devil in the mountains promise me a ride
Em7                         Dsus2
Found an 18 wheeler and put all of us inside
    Asus4                    Cadd9
And just outside of victory, 19 of us died
Em7                            Dsus2
None of our bodies hit the floor

          Asus4                Gadd9 Cadd9
And so my wife she still wonders     when I’m coming home
    Em7                            Dsus2
The riches that I promised her for leaving her alone
            Asus4                      Gadd9  Cadd9
I said that I would send her all that I could save
      Em7                    Dsus2
But I ended up in California in an unknown grave

Chorus
                    Cadd9  Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
G              Gmaj9       Em7/G
Growing in the California sand
                     Cadd9 Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Cadd9             Gadd9 Cadd9      Dsus2    Em7/G
We are the children of poverty     dying to a make a stand

                    Cadd9  Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
G              Gmaj9       Em7/G
Growing in the California sand
                     Cadd9 Dsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Cadd9             Gadd9 Cadd9      Dsus2    Em7/G
We are the children of poverty     dying to a make a stand
 3/4     1/4   3/4   1/4
Em7/G - Cadd9 - G - Cadd9 (reapeat that fading out.)
