[INTRO] Eb
[VERSE]
Eb
Nibblin' on sponge cake,
Eb
watchin' the sun bake;
Eb                                 Bb
All of those tourists covered with oil.
Bb
Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing.
Bb
Smell those shrimp
                      Eb
They're beginnin' to boil.

[CHORUS]
Ab       Bb               Eb     Eb7
Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Ab            Bb                   Eb Eb7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Ab            Bb                  Eb   Ebmaj7 Ab
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
      Bb                  Eb
But I know it's nobody's fault.

[VERSE]
Eb
Don't know the reason,
Eb
Stayed here all season
Eb                                        Bb
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo.
Bb
But it's a real beauty,
Bb
A Mexican cutie, how it got here
Bb          Eb  Eb7
I haven't a clue.

[CHORUS]
Ab       Bb               Eb     Eb7
Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Ab            Bb                   Eb Eb7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Ab            Bb                  Eb   Ebmaj7 Ab
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
Bb                                  Eb
But I think, - hell it could be my fault.

[INSTRUMENTAL] Eb Bb Eb Ebmaj7 Ab Bb Eb

[BRIDGE]
Eb
I blew out my flip flop,
Eb
Stepped on a pop top,
Eb                             Bb
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home.
Bb
But there's booze in the blender,
Bb
And soon it will render
Bb                                       Eb Eb7
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

[CHORUS]
Ab       Bb               Eb     Eb7
Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Ab            Bb                   Eb Eb7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Ab            Bb                  Eb   Ebmaj7 Ab
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
       Bb                    Eb
But I know, it's my own damn fault.
       Ab              Bb                 Eb   Ebmaj7 Ab
Yes, and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
        Bb                   Eb Ab Bb Eb
And I know it's my own damn fault.
