Carmelita featuring Dwight Yoakam
Flaco Jimenez 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

[Chorus]
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
They cut off your welfare check

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus: x2]

It's a great song the way Dwight sings it with passion & just want to hold him tighter & don't let go..with Flaco's accordion sound in the background couldn't have been played any better... fantastic beautiful song!

Wee Black Dug

This is all kinds of excellent. I can't believe it's been on tinternet for 6 years before I found it.


Thanks for putting it out there.

These two can reach deep into a man's soul and stir back to life !

The best part about being long in the tooth & fading in & out like a bad static Tube Radio Is; " BEEN there! DONE that! All with the scars to prove it. With my coffee beans or single malt & a pondering mind & their Green Eyes of beauty.
