[Intro]
D       Am      C    G    D

[Verse 1]
D                               Am
Down along the railroad tracks I ran into my old friend Jack.
C                                         G                   D
He was dressed in his Sunday best but his face was red and his eyes were dead.
   D                             Am
He said, "I lost Marina, and the last place that I seen her,
C              G                D
She was makin' off with my best friend."

[Verse 2]
  D                      Am
I took him to the water. I spent fifty dollars
   C                    G               D
On something that would take him to the moon.
        D                               Am
Well he must have gone to heaven 'cause just before I left him,
  C                 G                  D
I tried to wake him up but he wouldn't move.

[Chorus]
   D                       Am
So come on, Carmelita, you drank too much and I can see that
C                 G                D
Soon you're gonna need a breath of air.
      D                                       Am
We'll dance across the wheat field, there's a place I know just east of here
       C                 G               D
And it wouldn't take too long to go down there.
      Am
We'll sleep out on the ground
           C                                       G       D
And in the morning when we wake up, we'll leave town.

[Verse 3]
      D                            Am
And I picked my last tobacco leaf, soaking wet up to my knees,
C                    G              D
Out there before the sun was on the rise.
            D                          Am
And you can have a drink of water, but don't you look at my daughter,
        C                    G                D
Or I'll come down there and cut you with this knife.

[Chorus]
   D                       Am
So come on, Carmelita, you drank too much and I can see that
C                 G                D
Soon you're gonna need a breath of air.
      D                                       Am
We'll dance across the wheat fields, there's a place I know just east of here
       C                 G               D
And it wouldn't take too long to go down there.
      Am
We'll sleep out on the ground
           C                                       G      D
And in the morning when we wake up, we'll leave town.

[Solo]
D       Am      C    G    D
D       Am      C    G    D

[Verse 4]
D                              Am
There ain't any flack man, but if you're a black man
        C            G                          D
They'll put you on a plane back to where you're from.

[Chorus]
   D                       Am
So come on, Carmelita, you drank too much and I can see that
C                 G                D
Soon you're gonna need a breath of air.
      D                                       Am
We'll dance across the wheat fields, there's a place I know just east of here
       C                 G               D
And it wouldn't take too long to go down there.
      Am
We'll sleep out on the ground
           C                                       G       D
And in the morning when we wake up, we'll leave town.

[Outro]
D       Am      C    G    D
D       Am      C    G    D
