Carmelita

	  		(E) 

I hear Mariachi static on my radio 

And the tubes they glow in the (B7)dark, 

And I'm there with her in Ensenada, 

And I'm here in Echo (E)Park  

Carme(A)lita, hold me tighter, 

I (E)think I'm sinking (A)down, 

And I'm (E)all strung out on (B7)heroin 

On the outskirts of (E)town.  

Well, I'm sittin' here playing solitaire 

With my pearl-handled (B7)deck. 

The county won't give me no more methadone, 

And they cut off your welfare (E)check.  

Carme(A)lita, hold me tighter, 

I (E)think I'm sinking (A)down, 

And I'm (E)all strung out on (B7)heroin 

On the outskirts of (E)town. ? Instr. verse and Chorus -   

Well, I pawned my Smith Corona, 

And I went to meet my (B7)man. 

He hangs out down on Alvarado Street 

By the Pioneer Chicken (E)stand.  

Carme(A)lita, hold me tighter, 

I (E)think I'm sinking (A)down, 

And I'm (E)all strung out on (B7)heroin 

On the outskirts of (E)town.  

Carme(A)lita, hold me tighter, 

I (E)think I'm sinking (A)down, 

And I'm (E)all strung out on (B7)heroin 

On the outskirts of (E)town.
