Verse 1:
Acoustic 2 (Contiune Rhythm throughout)

I hear mariachi static on my radio and the tubes they glow in the dark
  B7 
And I'm there with her in Ensenada and I'm here in Echo Park
Chorus:
 
Carmelita____ hold_ me tighter____ I think I'm sinking___ down
  B7 
And I'm all strung out__ on herion on the out - skirts on town

Verse 2:
 
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
 
welfare check

Chorus:
 
Carmelita____ hold_ me tighter____ I think I'm sinking___ down
  B7 
And I'm all strung out__ on herion on the out - skirts on town
