歌詞

Miguel came from a small town in northern mexico

He came north with his brother luis to california three years ago

They crossed at the river levee when luis was just 16

And found work together in the fields of the san joaquin

They left their friends and family

Their father said my sons one thing you will learn

For everything the north gives it exacts a price in return

They worked side by side in the orchards

From morning till the day was thru

Doing the work the hueros wouldnt

Word was out some men in from sinaloa were looking for some hands

Well deep in fresno county there was a deserted chicken ranch

There was a small tin shack on the edge of a ravine

Miguel and luis stood cooking methamphetamine

You could spend a year in the orchards

Or make half as much in one ten-hour shift

Working for the men from sinaloa

But if you slipped the hydriodic acid

Could burn right thru your skin

Theyd leave you spittin up blood in the desert

If you breathed those fumes in

It was early one winter evening as miguel stood watch outside

When the shack exploded lighting up the valley night

Miguel carried luis body over his shoulder down a swale

To the creekside and there in the tall grass luis rosales died

Miguel lifted luis body into his truck and then he drove

To where the morning sunlight fell on a eucalyptus grove

There in the dirt he dug up 10000 dollars all that theyd saved

Kissed his brothers lips and placed him in his grave
