    Who's Gonna Build Your Wall

    Tom Russell

     

    [F]


    I got 800 miles of open border, [C] right outside my door there’s Minutemen 

    in little pickup trucks, who’ve de[Bb]clared their own dang [F] war

    now the government wants to build a barrier, like old [C] Berlin, eight feet tall

    but if Uncle Sam sends the illegals home, [Bb] who’s gonna build the [F] wall


    [F] Who’s gonna build your wall, boys, [Bb] who’s gonna mow your [F] lawn

    who’s gonna cook your Mexican food, when your [C] Mexican maid is gone

    [F] who’s gonna wax the floors tonight, [Bb] down at the local [Gm] mall

    [F] who’s gonna wash your baby’s face, [C] who’s gonna build your [F] wall


    now I ain’t got no politics, so don’t [C] lay that rap on me left wing, right wing,

    up wing, down, I see [Bb] strip malls from sea to shining [F] sea

    it’s the fat cat white developer, who’s [C] created this whole damn squall

    it’s a pyramid scheme of dirty jobs, and [Bb] who’s gonna build your [F] wall


    [F] Who’s gonna build your wall, boys, [Bb] who’s gonna mow your [F] lawn

    who’s gonna cook your Mexican food, when your [C] Mexican maid is gone

    [F] who’s gonna wax the floors tonight, [Bb] down at the local [Gm] mall

    [F] who’s gonna wash your baby’s face, [C] who’s gonna build your [F] wall


    we’ve got fundamentalist Moslems, we’ve got [C] fundamentalist Jews, 

    we’ve got fundamentalist Christians, they’ll blow the [Bb] whole thing up for [F] you

    but as I travel around this big old world, there’s [C] one thing that I most fear

    it’s a white man in a golf shirt, with a [Bb] cell phone in his [F] ear


    [F] Who’s gonna build your wall, boys, [Bb] who’s gonna mow your [F] lawn

    who’s gonna cook your Mexican food, when your [C] Mexican maid is gone

    [F] who’s gonna wax the floors tonight, [Bb] down at the local [Gm] mall

    [F] who’s gonna wash your baby’s face, [C] who’s gonna build your [F] wall


    yeah, [F]who’s gonna wash your baby’s face, [C]who’s gonna build your [F]wall
