Deportee chords - The Highwaymen

The Highwaymen Lyrics


            
Greg,

In January 1948 an airplane carrying Mexican Nationals crashed near the Los 
Gatos canyon in California.  Woody Guthrie, the voice of everyman, wrote a 
poem about the crash that was later put to music by Pete Seeger.  This is my 
interpretation of the version as done by The Highwaymen.

DEPORTEE

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

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

CHORUS: 
(C) Goodbye to my Juan, good (G) bye Rosalita
Adios (D) mi amigos, (D7) Jesus y (G) Maria
(C) You won't have a name when you (G) ride the big airplane
All they will call you will (D7) be.....Deportee (G)
(G) Some of us are illegal and (C) others not (G) wanted Our work contracts out and we (D) have to move (G) on (C) Six hundred miles to the (G) Mexican border They chase us like outlaws, like (D7) rustlers, like (G) thieves (C) Goodbye to my Juan, good (G) bye Rosalita Adios (D) mi amigos, (D7) Jesus y (G) Maria (C) You won't have a name when you (G) ride the big airplane All they will call you will (D7) be.....Deportee (G) (Chorus Instrumental) (G) The sky plane caught fire over (C) Los Gatos (G) canyon A fireball of thunder that (D) shook all the (G) hills (C) Who are all these dear friends (G) scattered like dry leaves The radio said they were (D7) just...Deportees (G) (Note: As near as I can tell this is a Spanish version of the chorus as performed by Johnny Rodriguez. If anyone can help me with the correct translation I would deeply appreciate it.) Adios mi Juan, adios Rosalita Adios mi amigos, Jesus y Maria No tiene su nombre con grande airplano All they will call you will be...Deportee
