  • Lyrics
  • This mariachi-inspired ballad finds Jennifer Nettles championing the hard working American immigrants. The song was inspired by a real-life window-washer who died in the 9/11 attacks.

    Nettles told Rolling Stone: "I want to humanize the immigrant story as an American story, and allow people a different narrative from what they might be seeing on the news or in their communities."
