"Margaritaville" and "Knocking on Heaven's Door"

MARGARITAVILLE

  C 
Living on sponge cake, watching the sun bake
                                         G
watching those tourists all covered with oil

Just strumming my six string, on the front porch swing
                                            C
Smelling those shrimp theyíre beginning to boil

chorus
 F        G                    C      F            G                 C  
Wasted away again in Margaritaville, searching for my lost shaker of salt
 F            G                   C       F                  G                  C
Some people claim that thereís a woman to blame, but I think, itís my own damn fault

I donít know the reason, I stayed here all season
got nothing to show but this brand new tattoo
Itís a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
how it got here, I havenít a clue

chorus

I blew off my flip-flops, stepped on a pop top
I cut my hell, had to cruise on back home
but thereís booze in the blender, and soon it will render
that frozen concoction that helps me hang on

KNOCKING ON HEAVENíS DOOR

  G         D         Am7        G       D             C
Take these guns off of me,       I canít shoot them anymore
  G          D                  Am7    G          D                   C
Itís getting dark, too dark to see,   I feel Iím knocking on heavenís door

chorus

Knock knock knocking on heavenís door, knock knock knocking on heavenís door
knock knock knocking on heavenís door, knock knock knocking on heavenís door

Throw these badges on the ground, I canít wear them anymore
Big black cloud is coming down, I feel Iím knocking on heavenís door
