VERSE:
         E                                  A                E
    The crops are all in and the peaches are rotting
         (E)                               A          E
    The oranges piled in their creosote dumps
            A                                     E
    They're flying them back to the Mexican border

    All they will call you will be deportee

Or whatever key you like....Throw in a few bass runs and you're all set.
