[Verse 1]
(Acoustic 2)(Contiune Rhythm throughout)
I hear mariachi static on my radio and the tubes they glow in the dark
B7                                                      E
And I'm there with her in Ensenada and I'm here in Echo Park

[Chorus]
E      A                            E          A 
Carmelita hold me tighter I think I'm sinking down
E                   B7                          E  
And I'm all strung out  on herion on the out - skirts of 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
              E                   B7                     E  
And I'm all strung out on herion on the out - skirts of town
