[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, ill put them on)

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.

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.
