Easy Guitar Tabs : Jimmy Buffett – Margaritaville




D
Nibblin' on sponge cake,
watchin' the sun bake;
                                                   A
All of those tourists covered with oil.
Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing.
Smell those shrimp
                                D     D7
They're beginnin' to boil.

G           A                            D         D7
Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
G                     A                      D    D7
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.
D  A  D  D7...
Don't know the reason,
Stayed here all season
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo.
But it's a real beauty,
A Mexican cutie, how it got here
I haven't a clue.
G  A  D  D7...
Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
Now I think, - hell it could be my fault.
D  A  D  D7...
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 concoction that helps me hang on.
G  A  D  D7...
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know, it's my own damn fault.
Yes, and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know it's my own damn fault.

Easy Guitar Tabs : Jimmy Buffett – The Asshole Song




D
Well I was drivin' down I-95 the other night,
G
Somebody nearly cut me right off the road.
    A
I decided it wasn't gonna do any good to get mad,
                     D
So I wrote a song about 'em instead. It goes like this.

D
Were you born an asshole?
                   G
Or did you work at it your whole life?
A
Either way it worked out fine
                          G             D
'cause you're an asshole tonight.
D                                                                    G
Yes you're an A-S-S-H-O-L-E and don't you try to blame it on me
A
You deserve all the credit.
                G              A
You're an asshole tonight.
D                                                            G
You were an asshole yesterday, you're an asshole tonight.
A                                              G                                D
And I got a feeling, you'll be an asshole the rest of your life.
D  G  A...
And I was talkin' to your mother just the other night,
I told her I thought you're an asshole.
She said, "Yes, I think you're right."
And all your friends are assholes 'cause you've known them your whole life.
And somebody told me you've got an asshole for a wife.
D  G  A...
Were you born an asshole, or did you work at it your whole life?
Either way it worked out fine 'cause you're an asshole tonight!

Easy Guitar Tabs : Jimmy Buffett – Son of A Son of a Sailor tab
Easy Guitar Tabs : Jimmy Buffett – Son of A Son of a Sailor



            G
As the son of a son of a sailor,
            F                   C            G
I went out on the sea for adventure,
      C                                        G
Expanding their view of the captain and crew
                   D                                 G
Like a man just released from indenture.
G  F  C  G...
As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin' man,
I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks,
And I've learned much from both of their styles.
F                     C                                                    G
Son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor.
F                             C
Son of a gun; load the last ton
                                      G
One step ahead of the jailer.
G  F  C  G
Now away in the near future, southeast of disorder,
You can shake the hand of the mango man
As he greets you at the border.
G  F  C  G
And the lady she hails from Trinidad,
Island of the spices.
Salt for your meat and cinnamon sweet,
And the rum is for all your good vices.
G  F  C  G
Haul the sheet in as we ride on the wind that our
Forefathers harnessed before us.
Hear the bells ring as the tide rigging sings.
It's a son of a gun of a chorus.
G  F  C  G
Where it all ends I can't fathom, my friends.
If I knew, I might toss out my anchor.
So I'll cruise along always searchin' for songs,
Not a lawyer, a thief or a banker.
F   C   G
But a son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor.
Son of a gun, load the last ton
One step ahead of the jailer
I'm just a son of a son, son of a son, son of a son of a sailor
The sea's in my veins, my tradition remains.
I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer.

Easy Guitar Tabs : Jimmy Buffett – Cheeseburger In Paradise




               G                  A              D
Tried to amend my carnivorous habits.
G                      A          D
Made it nearly seventy days,
            G                    A                     D
Losin' weight without speed, eatin' sunflower seeds,
E                                               A
Drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.
G  A  D  G...
But at night I'd have these wonderful dreams
Some kind of sensuous treat.
Not zucchini, fettuccini, or bulgur wheat,
But a big warm bun and a huge hunk of meat.
  G         A             D
Cheeseburger in paradise.
G                  A                       D
Heaven on earth with an onion slice.
G                  A             D
Not too particular, not too precise.
                    G       D             A     D
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise.
G  A  D  G....
Heard about the old time sailor men,
They eat the same thing again and again;
Warm beer and bread they say could raise the dead.
Well, it reminds me of the menu at a Holiday Inn.
G  A  D  G....
But times have changed for sailors these days.
When I'm in port I get what I need;
Not just Havanas or banana or daiquiris,
But that American creation on which I feed!
G  A  D  G....
Cheeseburger in paradise
Medium rare with mustard'd be nice
Not too particular, not too precise
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise.
(with silenced strings)
I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draught beer
Well, good god Almighty which way do I steer
G  A  D  G...
For a cheeseburger in paradise
Makin' the best of every virtue and vice.
Worth every damn bit of sacrifice
To get a cheeseburger in paradise;
To be a cheeseburger in paradise.
I'm just a cheeseburger in paradise.

G                   C
Headin' up to San Francisco
D                            G
For the Labor Day weekend show,
                   C
I've got my hush-puppies on,
               D
I guess I never was meant for
           G
Glitter rock and roll.
Am             C
And honey I didn't know
D
That I'd be missin' you so.
C                              G
Come Monday It'll be all right,
C                                   D
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
              G                Bm           C                D
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
            C                    D                 G
And I just want you back by my side.
G  C  D  G...
Yes it's been quite a summer,
rent-a-cars and west bound trains.
And now you're off on vacation,
somethin' you tried to explain.
And darlin' I love you so that's
the reason I just let you go.
C  G  C  D...
Come Monday It'll be all right,
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
And I just want you back by my side.
A                   D
I can't help it honey,
A                            D
You're that much a part of me now.
A                      D
Remember the night in Montana when
        C                                        D
We said there'd be no room for doubt.
G  C  D  G...
I hope you're enjoyin' the scenery,
I know that it's pretty up there.
We can go hikin on Tuesday,
with you I'd walk anywhere.
California has worn me quite thin,
I just can't wait to see you again.
C  G  C  D...
Come Monday It'll be all right,
Come Monday I'll be holding you tight.
I spent four lonely days in a brown L.A. haze
And I just want you back by my side.
