Buenas Noches From A Lonely Room – Dwight Yoakam

August 5, 2008

She wore red dresses with her black shining hair,
Oh, she had my baby and caused me to care.
Then coldly she left me to suffer and cry.
Oh, she wore red dresses and told such sweet lies.

I never knew him but he took her away.
On my knees like a madman for vengeance I prayed.
All the pain and the anger destroyed my weak mind.
Oh, she wore red dresses and left the wounded behind.

I searched till I found them. Then I cursed at the sight
Of their sleeping shadows in the cold neon light.
In the dark morning silence, I placed the gun to her head.
Oh, she wore red dresses but now she lay dead.

Carmelita – Warren Zevon

August 5, 2008

I hear Mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes they glow in the dark
And I’m there with her in Ensenada
And I’m here in Echo Park

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well, I’m sittin’ here playing solitaire
With my pearl-handled deck
The county won’t give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well, I pawned my Smith Corona
And I went to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
By the Pioneer chicken stand

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I’m sinking down
And I’m all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town
