Thanks for submitting this very strange and funny song, but there's a lot missing/not quite right here, I think:

- some chord changes in the minor verses missing
(To me it sounds like this: | Cm | Fm Cm | Cm | Gm Fm Cm |)

- there are no "F"s in the Margarita-chorus

- lyrics in the second chorus missing (difficult to understand, but I think they are something along these lines: "Still the sun went down your way / Down from the blue into the gray / From where I stood I saw you walk away, you danced away")

- chord changes in the last verse variation missing: | C | F C | C | G F C |

- I don't hear any chord changes in the final "Mar-ga-ri-ta"

Moreover, I'd suggest playing the whole thing with a capo on the 3rd fret for easier playing.

Phew, this is a lot and difficult to integrate into the structure of this tab. Think I'm going to submit my own version to make it clearer.
