                                                C
Miguel came from a small town in northern Mexico
              G                                                  D
He came north with his brother Louis to California three years ago
        G                               C
They crossed at the river levee, when Louis was just sixteen
            G                       D                  G
And found work together in the fields of the San Joaquin


They left their homes and families 
                                                   C
Their father said, "My sons one thing you will learn,
      G                                                    D
for everything the north gives, it exacts a price in return."
             G                                                             C
They worked side by side in the orchards from morning till the day was through
                    D              G
Doing the work the hueros wouldn't do.

                                                                C
Word was out some men in from Sinaloa were Iooking for some hands
       G                                                    D
Well, deep in Fresno county there was a deserted chicken ranch
      G                                             C
And there in a small tin shack on the edge of a ravine
                                     D        G
Miguel and Louis stood cooking methamphetamine

          C
You could spend a year in the orchards
                 G
Or make half as much in one ten hour shift
                C
Working for the men from Sinaloa
  G                   D
Ah, but if you slipped, 
    C
The hydriodic acid
       G                      C
Could burn right through your skin
                  G                            D
They'd leave you spittin' up blood in the desert
                             G
If you breathed those fumes in

        G                                                   C
It was early one winter evening as Miguel stood watch outside
      G                                           D
When the shack exploded, lighting up the valley night
                G                                                   C
Miguel carried Louis' body over his shoulder down a swale to the creekside 
     G                        D             G
And there in the tall grass, Louis Rosales died

                                                         C
Miguel lifted Louis' body into his truck and then he drove
       G                                              D
To where the morning sunlight fell on a eucalyptus grove
                                                                     C
There in the dirt he dug up ten-thousand dollars. all that they'd saved
                               D                 G
Kissed his brothers lips and placed him in his grave
