Carmelita
Willy DeVille Acoustic Trio 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

As usual when he covers a song Willy blows away the competition and makes it his own. This is a great version.

Great song written by Warren Zevon - brilliant performed by Willy. Two of the best. It's so sorry, they're not with us anymore!

Josef K

What is the strangest part is that he kept part of G.G. Allin's lyric changes (as fas as I can tell it was G.G. that changes them to Smith and Wesson)

Billy Deville gracias por tu musica.
Descansa en paz.

Rick Drewer

Amazing song, brilliant interpretation, the talent of this man is grossly under-rated.

Reto Nideröst

No way my friend Willy de Ville was NEVER unterredet! Pls change your mind.

Jutta Winkler

Willy knew where he sang, very moving, sad to hear this song, it has to be sometimes went through hell... He is at peace, and I love his Music the rest of my days!

Living in the Basel (Switzerland) area, I was at this AVO Basel Session of Willy's, and you can bet, people got simply crazy. I have never seen a concert of any worldstar just like this.

Rolf Menzen

Awesome cover of an old Warren Zevon classic

🙏 спасибо большое! Девиль пожалуй один из самых недооценённых музыкантов... мир праху его! Зивон исполняет Кармелиту по-своему, песня прекрасная, грустная. У Девиля она получилась! Не отпускай меня, Кармелита!... спасибо ещё раз
