Pinueta’s a village in a Mexican Valley 

Across the river from the Federalizes

Where the rain does not fall and that land it is dry
And the crops do not grow and the farmers they cry

The Gringos they come with their money and cars
and bargain with peasants while they smoke their cigars

Acedro says someday I’ll swim that big river
And send back the money to my mother and sisters

His father he died when he was still small
The smell of Tequila is all he recalls

When he asked his mother all she said
Is you can’t kill a man when he’s already dead

Well, all he took was the shirt on his back
The river was swift and the night it was black

The search lights they turned the land to a stage
Where the actors are strong and the performance is brave

Acedro was caught and put behind bars
The nights they pass slow when you can’t see the stars

Something it broke, deep down inside
The shame he felt he could not hide

When the news found his mother all she said
Is you can’t kill a man when he’s already dead
