Jimenez Flaco 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
They cut off your welfare check


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]

Dwight & Flaco =Perfection

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!

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.

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.

Patricia Amundson
