Lyrics

"Rio Grande"

She wakes at dawn to the same rising sun,
that shone so oppressively in her hometown of Metapán.
She traveled so far, just to be put behind bars,
Freedom never felt so close yet so far.
They gave her a coin so she could call who she wants,
Instead she cries by herself hoping we will hear.

She’s callin’ from the Rio Grande, yea and no one is listening,
yea yea
yea yea

Many are called, but few ever make the cut,
Sell the prayer of the Migrant just to make a buck.
She’ll try it again and again and again,
There’s no savior for her in Salvador.

She’s callin’ from the Rio Grande, yea and no one is listening,
yea yea
yea yea

She’ll try it again and again and again,
She’ll try it again and again and again.

She’ll try it again and again and again,
She’ll try it again and again and again. Oh

Oh, ooo oooo again, again again.
