[Verse]
D
Nibblin on sponge cake, watchin the sun bake,
                                  A
all of those tourist covered with oil.

Strummin my six string, on my front porch swing,
                                        D
smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil.


[Chorus]
G         A                 D          G
  Wastin away again in Margaritaville,
               A               D    G
searchin for my lost shaker of salt.
            A                    D  A     G
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
      A                   D
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.

But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie,
                            D
how it got here I haven't a clue.


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

[Verse]
(D)
I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top,
                                  A
cut my heel had to cruise on back home.

But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render,
                                          D
that frozen concoction that helps me hang on.


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