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

Słyszę jak Mariachi brzęczą w eterze
A ekrany w ciemności świecą
I jestem z nią tam w Ensenada
I jestem tu w Parku Echo

Carmelita trzymaj mnie mocniej)
Bo się zapadać zaczynam
Gdzieś na obrzeżach miasta
Złapała mnie heroina

Więc siedzę i stawiam pasjansa
Mą talią oprawną perłowo
Odcięli mi mój metadon
I wzięli Ci zapomogę

Carmelita złap mnie mocniej
Bo czuję że w ziemię wrastam
Wrąbany po uszy w herę
Gdzieś na rubieżach miasta

Cóż, zastawiłem Koronę
I idę spotkać dilera
Trzyma się Alvarado Street
I stoiska z kurczakami Pioneera

Więc trzymaj mnie Carmelita
Bo się zaczynam zapadać
Wrąbany w heroinę
Tam, gdzie się kończy osada

Gdzieś na obrzeżach miasta
Dopadła mnie heroina
Więc trzymaj mnie Carmelita
Bo się osuwać zaczynam

One of the best songs ever written about heroin addiction.

Some great songs mentioned here, would make a killer playlist/CD/mixtape!

Has anyone heard Gillian Welch's "My Morphine"...?

Spoons House

@liamsimpson1994 you are thinking of the Needle and the Damage Done

Spoons House

Along with the Velvets "Heroin" and "I'm waiting for the man" and Ramones "Chinese Rock"

@some guy have you listened to the cover of that song by Townes van Zandt? It's played during the outro of the Big Lebowski. I prefer it over the Stones' version personally. It has a much more raw quality to it

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.

Reading this comment nine years after you posted it, still not over losing him. He was, is, and always will be my favorite musician ever. RIP.
