Verse
       C                                 Fadd9
Well I packed all of my things into this blanket
   Am7/C                          Gsus2
To call this year to earn coyotes fill
        Dsus4                 Cadd9          Fadd9
Kiss my wife and kids goodbye choke back the quiver in my breath
    Am7                           Gsus2              Gsus2
And took my first steps into this corridor of death
       Dsus4                Cadd9 Fadd9
If I’m lucky I will make it to a  drain
     Am7/C               Gsus2
With 500 of my brothers, I would share the strain
   Dsus4              Cadd9 Fadd9
Of standing in this boxcar  praying for rain
         Am7                             Gsus2
It’s the only the way we will quench our thirst

Chorus
                    Fadd9  Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
C              Cadd9       Am7/C
Growing in the California sand
                     Fadd9 Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Fadd9             Cadd9 Fadd9       Gsus2    Am7/C
We are the children of poverty     trying to a make a stand

Verse
      C                                 Fadd9
If we make it past the border, we will scatter
Am7/C                             Gsus2
Vanish just like smoke in autumn wind
       Dsus4                 Cadd9 Fadd9
I will run until my color will not matter
    Am7                        Gsus2
Hopin’ I can find some work or possibly a friend
          Dsus4                    Cadd9 Fadd9
There are others who have made it here
                                Am7/C                      Gsus2
They will show me how to find a job and a place to lay my head
      Dsus4              Cadd9 Fadd9
And I cannot be concerned with dreams of my children
    Am7                   Gsus2
For there are 5 others in line for my bed

Chorus
                    Fadd9  Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
C              Cadd9       Am7/C
Growing in the California sand
                     Fadd9 Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Fadd9             Cadd9 Fadd9       Gsus2    Am7/C
We are the children of poverty     trying to a make a stand


       C                           Fadd9
I will gladly pick your peaches or clean your hotel rooms
Am7/C                Gsus2
I will do the jobs American won’t do
           D7sus4                         Cadd9 Fadd9
With their cell phones to their heads and $700   dollar shoes
Am7                             Gsus2              Gsus2
I will risk my life ‘cause it’s all I have to lose

        C                      Fadd9
Let the devil in the mountains promise me a ride
Am7                         Gsus2
Found an 18 wheeler and put all of us inside
    Dsus4                    Fadd9
And just outside of victory, 19 of us died
Am7                            Gsus2
None of our bodies hit the floor

          Dsus4                Cadd9 Fadd9
And so my wife she still wonders     when I’m coming home
    Am7                            Gsus2
The riches that I promised her for leaving her alone
            Dsus4                      Cadd9  Fadd9
I said that I would send her all that I could save
      Am7                    Gsus2
But I ended up in California in an unknown grave

Chorus
                    Fadd9  Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
C              Cadd9       Am7/C
Growing in the California sand
                     Fadd9 Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Fadd9             Cadd9 Fadd9      Gsus2    Am7/C
We are the children of poverty     dying to a make a stand

                    Fadd9  Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
C              Cadd9       Am7/C
Growing in the California sand
                     Fadd9 Gsus4
In these gardens of white crosses
           Fadd9             Cadd9 Fadd9      Gsus2    Am7/C
We are the children of poverty     dying to a make a stand
 3/4     1/4   3/4   1/4
Em7/G - Cadd9 - G - Cadd9 (reapeat that fading out.)
