General Notes:

Originally posted online August 7, 2007 on my old Geocities website. This song is about losing people across the USA-Mexico border.

Watch and Listen:

YouTube has the live version and the recorded version.

Other good immigration songs are "Pa'l Norte" by Calle 13 (Spanish, energetic) and "Tony and Maria" by Los Lobos (English, melancholy).
