Carmelita
Deville Willy Lyrics


Well, 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
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

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

du kannst Tränen vergießen, weil ich gegangen bin,
oder du kannst lächeln, weil ich gelebt habe.
Du kannst die Augen schließen und beten, dass ich wiederkehre,
oder du kannst die Augen öffnen und all das sehen, was ich hinterlassen habe
in dem Sinne - für immer in Liebe - und unvergessen !!

Günter Lötterle

Die Besten gehen 😥😥⚘⚘⚘❤💚🧡👍

So einschmeichelnd, eine Stimme die unter die Haut geht!!!

Gregor Claus

der Grölemeier müsste in Grund und Boden versinken wenn er diese Stimme hört statt sein unmusikalisches Gejaule

Jedesmal wenn ich ihn höre, zieht sich mein Herz schmerzvoll zusammen, soviel Liebe und Einmaligkeit die willy uns geschenk hat..... es tut so weh daß er nicht mehr bei uns ist.

Anne Langer

geht mir ganz genauso!!!
Ein unglaublicher, charismatischer Mensch!
I love you and I cry for you, Willy!

What an artist Willy was! Under appreciated by the mainstream. Though he wrote many great songs, he could really do justice to other artists like this song. Check out his rendition of The Belfast Cowboy's "Would You Could You" RIP Mr DeVille, you left us too soon

Michael Lawlor

Think that might have been The Belfast Gypsies, Bob.

Bernd Altmann he was BIG in France...and the Netherlands I believe. Europe tends to notice talent where there is some.

Bob, there was a particular reason why he didn´t get the attention he had earned. Te reason was that he never wanted to play and produce the songs the contracted record labels wanted him to play therefore he mostly had only a few songs for one record company. A god friend of mine told me how the system charts works: record companies provide the radio stations with records which should be played for commercial reasons. This way stars were produced which the companies wanted to be stars. In former times when you heard a song you liked you went to a record shop and bought the product. Sales figures and how often a song was played were he basic reasons for a hit, not the quality of the musicians.
Sometimes I see the name of Nino de Angelo. I don´t want to offend anybody and taste is different, but listen to one song of him and tell me if he is talented as a singer. Young girls liked him ! Think about such beaus like David Cassidy or some boygroups.
