  C                                         G
Alberto hits his brother on the back of the head
G                                      C
looks to the north as he starts to get up
C                                                G
brother's still sleepy, grumbles "it's not light yet,"
    G                                         C 
"if you want a new life, what's a few minutes wait?"

                F                 C
darkness on the road and over the land
         G                   C
into the laws and out of the hands
                  F                     C
from those with so much, and no show of heart
                    G      G                   C          C
you'd think it'd be crazy,   mmm..to ask for a small part

G G C C  
G G C C 

C                                   G
spotted an eagle in the middle of a lake
G                                 C
resting on cactus and feasting on snakes
    C                                G
The waters recede as the dump closes in
  G                                    C
revealing a whole lake of sleeping children

              F                        C
poison in the stream that flows to the sea
           G                       C
out on the waves that crash within reach
              F                  C
Those with so much, so little to fear
                    G     G                C
you'd think it'd be crazy,   to be so far away, yet so near

Dm          F            Am         C
some say, a new day will shine here    Mmmm
Dm         F              E          F            F
On these catastrophes and horrors of misfortune    Mmmmm
all across the wire

  C                      C  C/B C/A#  G
Alberto y Hermano on the co.yo..te's  trail
         G                    C
Mmmm and dodging the border patrol
C                                   G
out in the wastelands wandering for days
    G                                   C
the future looks bleak with no sign of change

                F                C
darkness in the eye, down in the soul
               G                    C
all across the wire, to those in control
            F                    C
holding so much, with no show of heart
                   G     G                       C
you think it'd be crazy,   Mmmm  to watch it all fall apart
    F            G    C
Oh  watch it all fall apart
