"El Norte" as written by and Peter Kingsbery....
It's a million miles
A giant place
Like a work of art
Amazing, amazing

Fast cars that cannot move
Die for a parking space
Stuck on a carousel
Crazy, it's crazy

When you laugh
Till you cry
When you laugh

[Chorus]
All's well here in El Norte
Who'd have thought it could be like this
Big money for a job well done
I swear to you
I got a ride from a coyote
Who sells high on the black market

So your loved one can be home soon
So your loved one can be home soon

Fine women with dress-up clothes
Say and do anything
Wake up to work the day
Tousled and tangled

Rub shoulders with the downtown gang
Where the Virgin lives
Just like a movie star
Hopeful and graceful

When she smiles
Till you laugh
Till you cry

[Chorus]

Maybe I don't understand it
Maybe I won't try
But nobody seems too satisfied

[Chorus]
