Dwight Yoakam – Carmelita lyrics

Carmelita

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

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

Well I pawned my Smith & Wesson
And I went down to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
At the 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
Yeah, 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
Yeah, I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town.

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