Carmelita chords
Warren Zevon

A E 2x
A

       E
I hear mariachi static on the radio,
                               B7
and the tubes they glow in the dark.

And I'm there with her in Ensenada,
                      E
when I'm here in Echo Park

E    A
Carmelita, hold me tighter,
  E                 A
I think I'm sinking down.
        E                 B7
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
                    E
on the outskirts of town.

         E
Well I'm sitting here playing solitaire,
                      B7
with my pearl handled deck.

The county won't give me no more methadone,
                              E
and they cut off your welfare check.

E    A
Carmelita, hold me tighter,
  E                 A
I think I'm sinking down.
        E                 B7
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
                    E
on the outskirts of town.

E  B7  E    E A  E  A  E  B7 E

       E
Well I pawned my Smith Corona,
                      B7
and I went to meet my man.

He hangs out down on Alvarado Street,
                       E
by the Pioneer Chicken Stand.

E    A
Carmelita, hold me tighter,
  E                 A
I think I'm sinking down.
        E                 B7
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
                    E
on the outskirts of town.

E    A
Carmelita, hold me tighter,
  E                 A
I think I'm sinking down.
        E                 B7
And I'm all strung out on heroin,
                    E
on the outskirts of town.

Solitaire? Pearl Handled Deck?!? WTF?!?

I'm sitting here
Playing Russian Roulette
With my pearl handled gun
the county won't give me no more methadone
and they cut off your welfare check

Someone who actually knows the original version of the song? These are the original lyrics from the version on his self-titled album. You're thinking of the alternate lyrics that GG Allin sang.
