Bracero (Live Version) - Phil Ochs

Wade into the river,

 

through the rippling shallow watter

Steal across the thirsty border, bracero

 

Come bring your hungry bodies

to the golden fields of plenty

 

From a peso to a penny, bracero

 

Oh, Welcome to California

 

Where the friendly farmer

will take care of you

 

Come labor for your mother,

your father and your brother

 

For your sister and your lover, bracero

 

Come pick the fruit of yellow,

 

break the flower from the berry

 

Purple grapes will fill your belly, bracero

 

Oh, Welcome to California

Where the friendly farmer will take care of you

 

And the sun will bite your body,

 

as the dust will draw you thristy

While your muscles beg for mercy, bracero

 

In the shade of your sombrero,

 

drop your sweat upon the soil

 

Like the fruit your youth can spoil, bracero

Oh, Welcome to California

Where the friendly farmer will take care of you

 

When the weary night embraces,

sleep in shacks that could be cages

They will take it from your wages, bracero

 

Come sing about tomorrow with a jingle of the dollar

And forget your crooked collar, bracero

 

Oh, Welcome to California

 

Where the friendly farmer will take care of you

 

And the local men are lazy,

and they make too much of trouble

Besides we'd have to pay the double, bracero

 

But if you feel you're fallin',

 

if you find the pace is killing

 

There are others who are willing, bracero

Oh, Welcome to California

Where the friendly farmer will take care of you
