Top Travel Songs of all time -- I have added "Mexico: by James Taylor - Songs of Travel
James Taylor singing "Mexico."
Driving across Nebraska, wondering why they radio wants to play song 30-40 year old, then this song came on the radio, and I needed to add it to my list of all time top travel songs. Top Travel Songs
- Andy Lee Graham perpetual traveler of the planet.
Mexico by James Taylor: Not an easy travel song to interpret, but I will use the words of the song to explain by moving around:
"Mexico I never really been,
but I'd sure like to go."
Do you "Feel a fool running your stateside games?
"Mexico It sounds so simple."
"The sun's so hot I forgot to go home."
There is something unexplained that happens to a person when a person is "out," and looking "in." They see the foolishness of playing the "stateside game."
Saying "Mexico," sounds simple, and in a way it is, but you will never understand until you forget to go home.
Andy Lee Graham of HoboTraveler.com 14 year outside the foolishness.
Lyrics to : Mexico Song by James Taylor
Way down here you need a reason to move
Feel a fool running your stateside games
Lose your load, leave your mind behind, Baby James
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 "Senorita" with the eyes on fire
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
I guess I'll have to go
I never really been but I'd sure like to go
I guess I'll have to go now
