Margaritaville  Alan Jackson

"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
[D]Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
All of those tourist covered with [A]oil
Strummin' my six string, on my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin' to [D]boil
[G] Wasti[A]n' away again in M[D]argaritaville
[G]Searchin' for my [A]lost shaker of [D]salt
[G]Some people [A]claim that there's a [D]wo[A]man to [G]blame
But I [A]know it's nobody's [D]fault
[D]I don't know the reason, I stayed here all season
Nothin' to show but this brand new [A]tatoo
But it's a real beautie, a Mexican cutie
But how it got here I haven't a [D]clue
Last line in 2nd chorus:
Now I think, it must be Buffetts’ fault
[D]I blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back [A]home
But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render
That frozen concotion that helps me hang [D]on
Last line in third chorus:
But I know, this is all Alan’s fault
[G]Some people [A]say that there's a [D]wo[A]man to [G]blame
But I [A]know it's our own damn[D] faults
Outro: D A D
