Linda Ronstadt - Carmelita

rate me

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 sinking 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

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

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
