Intro:
C  G    D  G


G                            C           G
The crops are all in and the peaches are rotting
                              D       G
The oranges are packed in the creoste dumps
        C                       G
They're flying them back to the Mexican border
                            D7        G
To save all their money and wade back again


G                         C          D
My father's own father he waded that river
                       D             G
Others before him have done just the same
     C                          G
They died in the hills and they died in the valleys
                         D7      G
Some went to heaven with out any names



Chorus: 

C                        G
Goodbye to my Juan, good bye Rosalita
      D          D7      G
Adios mi amigos, Jesus y Maria
    C                          G
You won't have a name when you ride the big airplane
                            D7        G
All they will call you will be Deportee 



(Repeat Intro) 


G                          C          G
Some of us are illegal and others not wanted
                              D            G
Our work contracts out and we have to move on
C                        G
Six hundred miles to the Mexican border
                                D7             G
They chase us like outlaws like rustlers, like thieves



(Repeat Chorus 2x)


G                              C         G
The sky plane caught fire over Los Gatos canyon
                           D             G
A fireball of thunder that shook all the hills
        C                      G
Who are all these dear friends scattered like dry leaves
                          D7          G
The radio said they were just Deportees 


(Repeat Chorus 2x)
