Carmelita


I hear mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes, they glow in the dark
I'm there with you in Ensenada
And I'm here in Echo Park

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinkin' down
And I'm all strung out on heroine
On the outskirts of town

I pawned my Smith-Corona
And I went to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
By the Pioneer Chicken Stand

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinkin' down
And I'm all strung out on heroine
On the outskirts of town

Well, I'm sittin' here playin' solitare
With my pearl-handled deck
The county won't give me no more methadone
And they've cut off your welfare check

Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinkin' down
And I'm all strung out on heroine
On the outskirts of town



Sunday nite and working late.... think that has anything to do with my mood? And I prefer the Warren Zevon version best.
