INTRO: D G A D D G A Bm G A (4 beats of each chord)

[D]                          [G] 
I beg your pardon, mama, what did you say?
[A]                             [D] 
My mind was drifting off on Martinique Bay.
[D]                           [G] 
It's not that I'm not interested, you see;
[A]                          [D] 
Augusta, Georgia is just no place to be.

[D] I think Jamaican in the [G]moonlight.
[A] Sandy beaches, drinking [D]rum every night.
[D] We got no money, mama, [G]but we can go;
[A] We'll split the difference, go to [D]Coconut Grove.

[D]  Keep on talking, mama, [G]I can't hear.
[A]  Your voice, it tickles down in[D]side of my ear.
[D]  I feel a tropical vac[G]ation this year,
[A]  Might be the answer to this [D]hillbilly fear.
[D]  I think Jamaican in the [G]moonlight.
[A]  Sandy beaches, drinking [D]rum every night.
[D]  We got no money, mama, [G]but we can go;
[A]  We'll split the difference, go to [D]Coconut Grove.
[D]  Voila!  An A[G]merican Dream.
[A]  Well, we can travel girl, with[D]out any means.
[D]  When it's as easy as [G]closing your eyes
[A]  And dream Jamaica is a [D]big neon sign.
BREAK: D G A D D G A Bm G A (like intro)

[D]  Just keep talking, mama, [G]I like that sound.
[A]  It goes so easy with that [D]rain falling down.
[D]  I think a tropical vac[G]ation this year,
[A]  Might be the answer to this [D]hillbilly fear.

[D]  Voila!  An A[G]merican Dream.
[A]  Yeah, we can travel girl, with[D]out any means.
[D]  When it's as easy as [G]closing your eyes
[A]  And dream Jamaica is a [D]big neon sign.
[D]  Just think Jamaican in the [G]moonlight.
[A]  Sandy beaches, drinking [D]rum every night.
[D]  We got no money, mama, [G]but we can go;
[A]  Split the difference, go to [D]Coconut Grove.
OUTRO: D G A D...(FADE OUT)
