Tabbed by: piturja

STANDARD TUNING

C                                          G
Alberto hits his brother on the back of the head
                                 C
looks to the north as he starts to get up
                                                   G
his brother's still sleepy, grumbles "it's not light yet,"
                                                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
from those with so much
               C
and no show of heart
                    G
you'd think it'd be crazy
               C            G C G C
to ask for a small part


                                   G
spotted an eagle in the middle of a lake
                                  C
resting on cactus and feasting on snakes
                                         G
but the waters recede as the dump closes in
                                       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
of those with so much
                 C
and so little to fear
                    G
you'd think it'd be crazy
                     C
to be so far away yet so near

Dm           F           C
some say a new day will shine here 
Dm            F                E        F
over these catastrophes and horrors of misfortune
               C
all across the wire

C                                   G
Alberto y Hermano on the coyote's trail
                         C
and dodging the border patrol
                                    G
out in the wastelands wandering for days
                                       C
the future looks bleak with no sign of change

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