Staff Notes: There are two copies of this record, both are in the same condition. This corrido is about a couple who migrate to Pennsylvania on 28 of April at 6 in the morning to avoid picking cotton in Texas. The woman will go to work washing clothes. They split up to work in seperate states but promise to keep in touch by writing to each other. The man ends up in Milwaukee and when he arrives he asks the Italians where the Mexican part of town is. Corrido ends with a smile on his face along with 300 faithful Mexican companions.
