[Verse 1]

D
Nibblin on sponge cake, watchin the sun bake, all of those tourist covered 
     A                                                      A7
with oil.  Strummin my six string, on my front porch swing, smell those 
                         D      D7
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     G            A
Some peolple claim that there's a woman to blame, but I know, it's nobody's
D
fault.


[Verse 2]

D
Don't know the reason, I stayed here all season.  Nothin to show but this 
             A                                              A7
brand new tattoo.  But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie, how it got here 
            D     D7
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     G            A
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, now I think, hell it could
      D
be my fault.


[Verse 3]

D
I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top, cut my heel had to cruise on 
     A                                                                 A7
back home.  But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render, that
                                     D    D7
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     G            A
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I know, it's my own 
     D      D7        G           A                    D  A     G
damn fault.  Yes and, some people claim that there's a woman to blame, and 
  A                      D
I know, it's my own damn fault.

Boy it messed that all up!! The line goes like you originally posted it except instead of going D-A-G on "Woman to blame" it goes D-Bm-G and then just play the rest but throw in an A-7 on the word: "nobody's" and back to D. Sorry about that I formatted it perfect and when I clicked Submit, this is what resulted.
