Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes

e:1  e:5  e:3  e:3  e:3  e:7  e:5  e:5
B:1  B:5  B:3  B:3  B:5  B:9  B:7  B:6

I find, that this is the most simple way to play the song. To me it sounds almost exactly like the original.
One of the other tab version of this song, which i found to be useful but not fully correct, switched the Gm7
and Dm7 chords, but when i listen to the song i'm quite sure this is the correct way.

F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | G Dm7 C | Gm7
F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | Em F C |

                  F    Am G F
I was tired of my lady,
            Gm7         C    E D C
We'd been together too long.
            Dm7      F     Am G F
Like a worn out recording,
     Gm7       C    E D C
of a favorite song.

             Dm7        F       Am G F
So while she lay there sleepin' 
           Gm7        C  E D C
I read the paper in bed
           Dm7        F      Am G F
And in the personal columns
               Gm7        C  E D C
There was this letter i read

                 F       Am G F
If you like piña coladas
                Gm7        C    E D C
and gettin' caught in the rain
          Dm7       F    Am G F
if you're not into yoga
       Gm7          C    E D C
if you have half a brain 

            Dm7             F       Am G F
if you like makin' love at midnight
       Gm7       C     E D C
in the dunes of a cape
             Dm7               F         Am G F
then I'm the love that you've looked for
   Gm7           C    E F C
write to me and escape.

F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | G Dm7 C | Gm7
F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | Em F C |

                       F     Am G F
I didn't think about my lady, 
              Gm7            C   E D C
I know that sounds kind of mean
          Dm7      F    Am G F
But me and my old lady 
            Gm7        C           E   D C
had fallen into the same old dull routine

      Dm7          F     Am G F
So I wrote to the paper, 
           Gm7       C  E D C
took out a personal ad
            Dm7          F     Am G F
And though I'm nobody's poet, 
             Gm7         C    E D C
I thought it wasn't half bad.


                 F      Am G F
Yes, I like piña coladas
              Gm7          C    E D C
and getting caught in the rain
         Dm7       F           Am G F
I'm not much into health food, 
    Gm7        C       E D C
I am into champagne

            Dm7          F        Am G F
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
              Gm7         C      E D C
and cut through all this red tape
     Dm7         F         Am G F
At a bar called O'Malley's
            Gm7       C      E D C
where we'll plan our escape.


F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | G Dm7 C | Gm7
F | Am G F | Dm7 | C | Em F C |


                 F         Am G F
So I waited with high hopes
          Gm7          C    E D C
and she walked in the place
            Dm7         F       Am G F
I knew her smile in an instant, 
           Gm7          C     E D C
I knew the curve of her face

          Dm7         F    Am G F
It was my own lovely lady 
         Gm7        C      E D C
and she said,

Complex over thinking the song. Maybe inaccurate guitar chords in places

I think this chords progression example is more accurate

Dm7 F Am G F
I was tired of my lady,
Dm C Em Dm C
We'd been together too long.
Dm7 F Am G F
Like a worn out recording,
Dm C Em Dm C
of a favorite song.

I like tigerdj's correction. I could add two more.
Before the F chords I hear E7#9
Before the C chords I hear F/G
