Mexico chords
James Taylor 1975

Capo II

D A D Bm A  Em Bm C G 2x (some finger picking required here)

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

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

      D             A      G
"Americano" got the sleepy eye
        D                    A           G
But his body's still shaking like a live wire
            D              A       G
Sleepy "Senorita" with the eyes on fire

E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
   E         C#m            B           A
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
          C#m            B            A
Moon's so bright like to light up the night
G         A         E
Make everything all right

Solo  
D E  4x
G
       D              A           G               
Baby's hungry and the money's all gone
    D                             A           G
The folks back home don't want to talk on the phone
    D                         A          G
She gets a long letter, sends back a postcard; times are hard

E   C#m     B   A
Oh, down in Mexico
  E            C#m       B            A
I never really been so I don't really know
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
  G          A       E
I guess I'll have to go

E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
  E            C#m          B            A
I never really been but I'd sure like to go
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
  G          A          E
I guess I'll have to go now
E        C#m  B   A
Talking about Mexico
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico
E  C#m  B   A
Oh,     Mexico. . .

Although this gives a basic idea of the song many parts are incorrect...
the intro goes D A D A G (adding the picking parts)F# E (picking riff) C G (2X)
The guess I'll have to go now part is G F# E Esus E
The solo part is missing a chord in between the D and E....it's like a quick Db
The outro is completely wrong and is C#m B A E repeated through the fade
Hope this helps

Easily understood and the finger picking note adds to the texture of this arrangement.
