Carmelita

Down along the railroad track

I ran into my old friend Jack

He was dressed in his Sunday best

but his face was mad and his eyes was a daze



He said `I lost Marina

and the last place that I'd seen her

she was making off

with my best friend'



I took him to the water

I spent fifty dollars

on something that would take him to the moon



Well he must have gone to heaven

cuz just before I left him

I tried to wake him up

but he would not move



So come on Carmelita,

you drunk too much

and I can see that

soon you're gonna need a breath of air



We'll dance across the wheatfields

There's a place I know just east of here

It wouldn't take too long to (____?)



We'll sleep out on the ground

and in the morning when we wake up

we'll leave town



And I picked my last tobacco leaf

Soaking wet up to my knees

out there before the sun has (arise?)



You can have a drink of water

but don't you look at my daughter

or I'll come down there and cut you with this knife



So come on Carmelita

You drunk too much

and I can see that

soon you're gonna need a breath of air



We'll dance across the wheatfields

There's a place I know just east of here

It wouldn't take too long to (____?)



We'll sleep out on the ground

and in the morning when we wake up

we'll leave town



There ain't any flat man

but if you are a black man

they'll put you on a plane

back from where you're from



We'll sleep out on the ground

and in the morning when we wake up

we'll leave town
