      About "Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos)"

      Lyrics for Dolly Parton - "Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos)"

      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
