Subject: TAB:  "Mexico" by James Taylor


by James Taylor

Transcribed by Rich Barber   gralau@twd.net

Capo 2 frets

I don't have all the notes here but this is
the basic outline



play twice

         Dsus4   D               A         G
Way down here        you need a reason to move
        Dsus4  D                A          G
Feel a fool       running your stateside games
          Dsus4  D              A     G
Lose your load,    leave your mind behind,
Baby James

D-E  B  A
Oh, Mexico
     C#m      B        A          E
It sounds so simple I just got to go
    C#m       B       A          C#m
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Em7         A      E
Guess I'll have to go now


"Americano" got the sleepy eye
But his body's still shaking like a live wire
Sleepy "Se?orita" with the eyes on fire

Oh, Mexico
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
Moon's so bright like to light up the night
Make everything all right




Baby's hungry and the money's all gone
The folks back home don't want to talk on the phone
She gets a long letter, sends back a postcard; times are hard

Oh, down in Mexico
I never really been so I don't really know
Oh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go

Oh, Mexico
I never really been but I'd sure like to go
Oh, Mexico
I guess I'll have to go now
