D
 Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
                                    A7
All of those tourists covered with oil
A7
 Strummin' my six-string on my front porch swing
                                        D
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

G         A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
G               A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Searching for my lost shaker of salt
G              A7                 D A7     G
 Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
        A7                D
But I know it's nobody's fault

D
 Don't know the reason I stayed here all season
                                       A7
Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
A7
 But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
                              D
How it got here I haven't a clue

G         A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
G               A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Searching for my lost shaker of salt
G              A7                 D A7     G
 Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
        A7                          D
Now I think, "Hell, it could be my fault."

D
 I blew out my flip-flop. Stepped on a pop-top
                                   A7
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
A7
 But there's booze in the blender and soon it will render
                                           D
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

G         A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
G               A7                D         Dsus4  D
 Searching for my lost shaker of salt
G              A7                 D A7     G
 Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
        A7                   D
But I know it's my own damn fault
       G              A7                 D A7     G
Yes and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
        A7                   D    G  A7  D Dsus4 D
And I know it's my own damn fault
