The crops are all in and the peaches are rotting 
The oranges are piled in their creosote dumps 
You're flying them back to the Mexican border 
To pay all their money to wade back again 

Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye Rosalita 
Adios mis a-mi-gos, Jesus and Maria 
You won't have a name when you ride the big airplane 
All they will call you will be deportee 

Some of us are illegal and some of us are not wanted 
Our work contract's out and we have to move on 
But it's 600 miles to that mexican border 
They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves 

Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye Rosalita 
Adios mis a-mi-gos, Jesus and Maria 
You won't have a name when you ride the big airplane 
All they will call you will be deportee 

My father's own father, waded that river 
They took all the money he made in his life 
My brothers and sister come work the fruit trees 
They rode the truck til' they took down and died 

The airplane caught fire over Los Gatos canyon 
A fireball of lightning that shook all our hills 
Who are these dear friends all scattered like dry leaves 
The radio said they were just deportees 

Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye Rosalita 
Adios mis a-mi-gos, Jesus and Maria 
You won't have a name when you ride the big airplane 
All they will call you will be deportee 

No, all they will call you will be deportee 
All they will call you will be deportee
