‘Carmelita’ lyrics (cover)

No Comments »

Original by Warren Zevon

Carmelita, hold me tighter. I think I’m sinkin’ down …


I hear mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes, they glow in the dark
And 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 heroin
on the outskirts of town.
Well, I pawned my Smith and Wesson,
and I went to meet my man.
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street,
at the Pioneer Chicken stand

Well, I’m sittin’ here playin’ solitaire
with my pearl handled deck.
The county won’t give me no more methadone
and they cut off your welfare check
