Carmelita
Adam Duritz Lyrics


I hear Mariachi static on my 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
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 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

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin

Only Imus could challenge all these artists to step out of their comfort zones and make the most amazing music!

What the hell is the deal poiticizing this song? I hope Duritz finds out and makes you take it down.

CHRIS COPE

Great song! no clue why there's so much right wing nonsense but again Great Song, just close your eyes and sing and all of sudden it's perfect lol

This is one of those rare cases where the remake is much better than the original.

Warren Zevon Wrote this song, back in the early 70's. Linda Ronstadt has done the best cover of this song in the late 70's. Adam's cover is probably more recent and doesn't match Linda's. As for Beck, I am very conservative but take a lot of what Glenn says with a large grain of salt. However, He does make a lot of good points. Personally, I believe that all politicians are corrupt and only out for themselves and their own agenda.
