         G     D             A         G
Way down here     you need a reason to move
          G     D             A         G
Feel a fool     running your stateside games
           G     D          A         G
Lose your load,   leave your mind behind, 
Baby James 
E   C#   B  A
Oh,      Mexico 
   E         C#        B          A
It sounds so simple I just got to go 
    E        C#m      B          A
The sun's so hot I forgot to go home 
G          D/F#      E
Guess I'll have to go now
  G      D         A        G
"Americano" got the sleepy eye
  G          D            A              G
But his body's still shaking like a live wire
       G       D          A         G
Sleepy "Senorita" with the eyes on fire
E C#   B  A
Oh,   Mexico
       E         C#         B           A
It sounds so sweet with the sun sinking low
     E        C#m           B          A
Moon's so bright like to light up the night
 G          D/F#      E
Make everything all right
    G       D         A        G
Baby's hungry and the money's all gone
        G      D           A                   G
The folks back home don't want to talk on the phone
             G      D             A        G
She gets a long letter, sends back a postcard; times are hard
E  C#   B        A
Oh,    down in Mexico 
     E         C#         B           A
I never really been so I don't really know
E  C#  B  A
Oh,   Mexico 
   G          D/F#      E
I guess I'll have to go now
E  C#  B  A
Oh,    Mexico 
     E         C#         B              A
I never really been but I'd sure like to go 
E  C#  B  A
Oh,     Mexico 
   G         D/F#      E
I guess I'll have to go now
