Carmelita
Warren Zevon 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
On the outskirts of town

Lol honestly this song is way more upbeat than my 13 years of heroin addiction was

Paddy Tate

Yeah bro
I rock this song in Australia
It teaches to never go back to the rock

Chris Floyd

Hope you got clean. If so way to go.

Kent Underwood

Yes. But the very first time is magical

Brad Roberts

I bet ✊️🤘✌️

john meyer

56. He died of Mesothelioma in Sept. 2003. One of best rock lyricists of all time. And a damn good performer too, as this tune attests.

Steve Perreira

His music and lyrics are simply beautiful. Who needs country music from Nashville when we have Mr. Zefron.

Jimmy Martin

He's playing solitaire with a pearl handled deck. Russian roulette with a revolver. I'm understanding now

Paddy Tate

@Brenda Harper gg allies version is good

Phillip Jameson

Also I think that "Smith Corona" (typewriter) is a reference to Smith and Wesson (gun company).
