Friday Night Immigration Jam: Los Lobos - Will the Wolf Survive?

All alone in a world that’s changed

The video’s several years old and low resolution, but with the House Republicans’ vote for a deranged racist anti-immigrant bill that has no chance of passing the Senate, I can’t think of a better song for tonight’s jam than the Los Lobos classic “Will The Wolf Survive?”

Through the chill of winter
Running across a frozen lake
Hunters hard on his trail
All odds are against him
With a family to provide for
But one thing he must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?

Drifting by the roadside
Climbs a strong and aging face
Wants to make some honest pay
Losing to the rainstorm
He’s got two strong legs to guide him
Two strong arms keep him alive
Will the wolf survive?

Standing in the pouring rain
All alone in a world that’s changed
Running scared now forced to hide
In a land where he once stood with pride
But he’ll find his way by the morning light

Sounds across the nation
Coming from your hearts and minds
Battered drums and old guitar
Singing songs of passion
It’s the truth that they all look for
Something they must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?
