Migration has always been a part of the American experience. Whether one's ancestors came long ago or just yesterday, it's a part of all of ours histories. As residents of this great land, we all share that elemental trait. This song is the story of one such individual who risks everything to leave their young family in search of opportunities to better support them. It exists out of time, and could describe anyone from a dust-bowl era migrant to an undocumented migrant crossing our southern border.
