Epigraph, via Prof. Leopoldo Santos Ramírez in Matrimonios de anglos y mexicanos en la frontera, which is now overdue at the Boise Public Library:

So he told her the story of his family
The trouble that brought the barbed wire
And of all the things he couldn’t change
And then he told her that he loved her
—”Señorita,” Words by DeVito and Flowers, sung by Don Williams
