Lyrics:Phil Ochs

Wade into the river
Through the rippling shallow watter
Steal accross
the thirsty border
Bracero

Come bring your hungry bodies
To the golden fields
of plenty
From a peso to a penny
Bracero

Oh, welcome to California
Where
the friendly farmers
Will take care of you

Come labor for your mother
For your
father and your brother
For your sisters and your lover
Bracero

Come pick the
fruits of yellow
Break the flowers from the berries
Purple grapes will fill your
bellies
Bracero

Oh, Welcome to California
Where the friendly farmers
Will
take care of you

And the sun will bite your body
As the dust will draw you
thristy
While your muscles beg for mercy
Bracero

In the shade of your
sombrero
Drop your sweat upon the soil
Like the fruit your youth can
spoil
Bracero

Oh, welcome to California
Where the friendly farmers
Will
take care of you

When the weary night embraces
Sleep in shacks that could be
cages
They will take it from your wages
Bracero

Come sing about
tomorrow
With a jingle of the dollars
And forget your crooked
collar
Bracero

Oh, welcome to California
Where the friendly farmers
Will
take care of you

And the local men are lazy
And they make too much of
trouble
Besides we'd have to pay them double
Bracero

Ah, but if you feel you're
fallin'
If you find the pace is killing
There are others who are
willing
Bracero

Oh, welcome to California
Where the friendly farmers
Will
take care of you
