(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.
