Verse 1:


Acoustic 2 (Contiune Rhythm throughout)





     I hear mariachi static on my radio and the tubes they glow in the dark

     Carmelita____ hold_ me tighter____ I think I'm sinking___ down

     And I'm all strung out__ on herion on the out - skirts on town





Verse 2:


   [ E ] 


    Well I'm sitting here playing solitare with my pearl handled deck


 [ B7 ] 


      The county won't give me no more methadone and they cut off your


              [ E ] 


      welfare check





Chorus:


    [ E ]  [ A ]                         [ E ]                [ A ] 


     Carmelita____ hold_ me tighter____ I think I'm sinking___ down
