Merry go ‘round

Studio/CD version 


F# 
If you ain't got two kids by 21,
                               B
You're probably gonna die alone
                                 F#
Least that's what tradition told you.

And it don't matter if you don't believe,
F#
Come Sunday morning, you best be there in the 
B
front row like you're supposed to.


Bm                 F#
Same hurt in every heart.
Bm                      C#
Same trailer, different park.


CHORUS
        B
        Mama's hooked on Mary Kay.
        
        Brother's hooked on Mary Jane.
        F#
        Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down.
        B
        Mary, Mary quite contrary.
        
        We get bored, so, we get married
        F#
        Just like dust, we settle in this town.
                B                F#     
        On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
        F#                    Bm  
        Where it stops nobody knows 
                                 F#   
        and it ain't slowin' down.
        B                  F#
        This merry go 'round   


 


F#
We think the first time's good enough.
                                  B
So, we hold on to high school love
                               F#
Sayin' we won't end up like our parents.

Tiny little boxes in a row.
F#
Ain't what you want, it's what you know.
B
Just happy in the shoes you're wearin'.


Bm                       F#
Same checks we're always cashin' 
Bm                   C#           B   
to buy a little more distraction 


CHORUS * * * * *  


SOLO :    F#  B  F#   B


B
Mary, Mary quite contrary.

We're so bored until we're buried
F#                                Bm
Just like dust, we settle in this town. 
                               F#
On this broken merry go 'round    
         B
merry go 'round   


outtro:
F#
Jack and Jill went up the hill.
Jack burned out on booze and pills.
And Mary had a little lamb.
Mary just don't give a damn no more.

or you can put capo on 2nd fret and f# becomes E, Bm becomes Am, B becomes A, and C# becomes B. makes it a bit easier
