James Taylor Mexico Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This number was fingerpicked during the recording for the album but in concert James Taylor played this one with a bit more up-tempo and that's the version I have here with a capo on the 2nd fret..

Some James Taylor songs have a lot of rhythm changes and this is one that's best explained in the lesson. One of the main ones you'll use is a pause up down up and there will be some areas requiring all down strokes. You'll also see some quick shuffle strumming that duplicates the drums.

Mexico Live - James Taylor In Concert


Mexico Lyrics

Way down here - you need a reason to move
Feel a fool running your stateside games
Lose your load, leave your mind behind Baby Jane

Oh, Mexico - It sounds so simple I just got to go
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home
Guess I'll have to go now

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

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

Oh Oh Oh Oh Mexico

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 see it

Oh, Mexico - I never really been so I dont really know
Oh, Mexico - I guess I'll have to go now
Down talking 'bout in Mexico
Oh, Mexico
Oh, Mexico
Mexico -----Mexico
Oh, Mexico
Mexico - down in Mexico
Oh, Mexico
Mexico - down in Mexico
