James sings about Mexico, then says he's "Never really been" there. Actually, he refers to having been in Mexico for a concert, but coming down with traveler's diarrhea (Montezuma's revenge). He canceled the show, spending the whole time in his hotel room, which greatly disappointed him.
David Crosby and Graham Nash sang the harmonies. Taylor was married to Carly Simon at the time, and she also sang on the album.
Jimmy Buffett remade this song on his album Barometer Soup
. Buffett pays tribute to Taylor several times in the song.
