1st verse:

        

D

nibblin on sponge cake, Watchin the sun bake

                               A

all those tourists covered in oil

A

strummin my six string, on my front porch swing

A7                                      D

watch those shrimp there beggining to boil



Chorus:(there are slight variations to the chorus throughout the song,

G        A                  D

Wastin' Away again in Margaritaville

G             A               D

Lookin for my lost shaker of salt

G            A              D A       G

Some people claim theres a woman to blame

A7                          D

but I know  It could be my fault



verse 2:



D

Don't know the reason, been here all season,

                                    A

Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo.

A

But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie,

A7                           D

How it got here I haven't a clue.



Chorus Variation 2:

G       A            D

Wasted away again in Margaritaville,

G               A                D

Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.

G           A                     D A     G

Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,

A7                               D

But I know hell, it could be my fault.





Verse 3:



D

Blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop-top,

                                    A

Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home.

A

But there's booze in the blender and soon it will render,

A7                                      D

That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.





Chorus variation 3:



G      A             D

Wasted away again in Margaritaville,

G               A               D

Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.

G           A                    D A      G

Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,

A7                          D

But I know it's my own damn fault.







repeat chorus variation 3 and fade:
