Cross Canadian Ragweed - Carmelita
I hear mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes they light up the dark.
And I'm with her in Encinada
Stuck in Echo Park
Carmelita, hold me tighter
I think I'm sinkin down.
And I'm all strung-out on heroin
on the outskirts of town.
Well I'm sittin' here playin' solitare
With my pearl handled deck
The county won't give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check.
Well I pawned my Smith and Corona
and I went down to meet my man.
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
by the Pioneer Chicken stand.
