Carmelita

This song is by Counting Crows.

This song is a cover of "Carmelita" by Warren Zevon.
Well, I hear mariachi static on the radio,
And the tubes they glow in the dark,
And I'm there with her in Ensenada,
And I'm here in Echo Park.

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

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

Carmelita, hold me tighter,
Oh I think I'm sinking down,
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
On the outskirts of town.

Well I pawned my Smith Corona,
And I went to meet my man,
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street,
By that pioneer chicken stand.

Carmelita, hold me tighter,
Yeah I think I'm sinking down,
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
On the outskirts of town.

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