D D
Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
A A
All of those tourist covered with oil
A7 A7
Strummin' my four string, on my front porch swing
D D D7 D7
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to boil

G G A A D D D7 D7
Wastin' away again in Margarita-ville
G G A A D D D7 D7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G G A A D D A A G G
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
D D A A D D
But I know it's nobody's fault

D D
I don't know the reason, I stayed here all season
A A
Nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
A7 A7
But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
D D D7 D7
But how it got here I haven't a clue


G G A A D D D7 D7
Wastin' away again in Margarita-ville
G G A A D D D7 D7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G G A A D D A A G G
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
D D A A D D
But I know it could be my fault


D D
I blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top
A A
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
A7 A7
But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render
D D D7 D7
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on


G G A A D D D7 D7
Wastin' away again in Margarita-ville
G G A A D D D7 D7
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
G G A A D D A A G G
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
D D A A D D
But I know it's my own damn fault

G G A A D D A A G G
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
D D A A D D
But I know it's my own damn fault
