Am  -  C

Father says head down
We don't want them finding you
Mother says practice now
All the words you know

    Dm         Am
Oh, Arizona's burning
      C        G            F
They say the fence turned round
Now the razor wire keeps us out

Am  -  C

Mother says with luck
We'll sleep under a roof tonight
Father says in the truck
We'll be crushed in tight

       Dm            Am
Oh, Chicago don't forget me
        C        G       F
As the miles between us grow
          G                          Am
Keep the maple tree carved with the name of my love
     Bb             C         F
The hills we would sled race down
      Bb       C    F                      G
Lake Michigan stay endless and painted in sky


Mother says years ago
The whole world was ours to rule
Father says let it go
Those days are gone for good

         Dm             Am
All the signs read no gringo
      C            G        F
But somehow we'll find our way
        G                     Am
Maybe waiting at dawn by the factory doors
 Bb           C            F
Sunburnt and bent in the fields
      Bb           C
Hey, don't turn us in
          F              G
We'll be silent as the grave
As time

Am   Dm – Am

F    C    G

Am   Dm – Am

F    C    G

No gringo
    Dm     Am
No gringo aqui
          F       C           G
Words as levies against the flood
Hoy, cerrado
             Dm      Am
There's too many to feed
          F        C             G
Room for only our own kind, our own blood
     Am         Dm    Am
No gringo, no gringo aqui
           F             C            G
You have stayed in this land for too long
Tan amargo
            Dm           Am
But there's no time to grieve
          F             C             G
You just pack up your things and move on

And move on
And move on
