    D (6)

    Nibblin’ on sponge cake
    Watchin’ the sun bake

                                                    A (8)
    All of those tourists covered with oil
    Strummin’ my six-string
    On my front porch swing

                                                              D     D7
    Smell those shrimp they’re beginnin’ to boil

    D (6)
    I don’t know the reason
    I stayed here all season

                                                             A (8)
    Nothin’ 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

    now I think

                                 D (2)

    Hell, it could be my fault

     

    D (6)
    I blew out my flip-flop
    Stepped on a pop-top

                                                        A (8)
    Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
    But there’s booze in the blender
    And soon it will render

                                                                   D   D7
    That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
