[Intro]
D G A D

[Verse]
D
   Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
                                   A
All of those tourists covered with oil
A
   Strummin' my six string, on my front porch swing
                                       D     D7
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

[Chorus]
G           A                  D        D7   G                 A                D     D7
   Wastin' away again in Margaritaville,        searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G              A                    D   A/C#  G           A                   D
   Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I know, it's nobody's fault

[Verse]
D
   Don't know the reason, I stayed here all season
                                      A
Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
A
   But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
                            D     D7
How it got here I haven't a clue

[Chorus]
G           A                  D        D7   G                 A                D     D7
   Wastin' away again in Margaritaville,        searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G              A                    D   A/C#  G           A                          D
   Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, now I think, hell it could be my fault

[Instrumental]
D     A 
G A D A/C# G A D

[Verse]
D
   I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top
                                  A
Cut my heal had to cruise on back home
A
   But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render
                                        D     D7
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

[Chorus]
G           A                  D        D7   G                 A                D     D7
   Wastin' away again in Margaritaville,        searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G              A                    D   A/C#   G          A                      D    D7
   Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I know, it's my own damn fault
         G             A                    D   A/C#  G           A                      D
Yes and,   some people claim that there's a woman to blame, and I know, it's my own damn fault

[Outro]
D G A D

d du du du the only time it changes is when the progression happens between the verse and chorus when it vamps (increases speed)... but yeah that about raps it up there is videos on u tube where you can get a visual of the strumming
