"Margaritaville" by Alan Jackson (w/ Jimmy Buffett)
Written by Jimmy Buffet
Album: "Under the Influence"
Transcribed by Jennifer and Jason Hannan

Intro:  D  A  D

Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
All of those tourist covered with oil
Strummin' my six string, on my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

G        A                 D            
    Wastin' 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
      A                  D
But I know it's nobody's fault

I don't know the reason, I stayed here all season
Nothin' to show but this brand new tatoo

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

Last line in 2nd chorus:
Now I think, it must be Buffetts’ fault
I blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home

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

Last line in third chorus:
But I know, this is all Alan’s fault
G           A                  D A      G
Some people say that there's a woman to blame
      A                     D
But I know it's our own damn faults

Outro:  D  A  D
