Merry go ‘round
Studio/CD version
 

F# 
If you ain't got two kids by 21
                           D#m
You're probably gonna die alone
                            F#
Least that's what tradition told you
F#                               F#7
And it don't matter if you don't believe
        
Come Sunday morning, you best be there in the 
D#m
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
B7
Brother's hooked on Mary Jane
F#                               F#7
Daddy's hooked on Mary two doors down
B
Mary, Mary quite contrary
B7
We get bored, so, we get married
F#                                D#m
Just like dust, we settle in this town
        B                F#                   F#7
On this broken merry go 'round and 'round and 'round we go
D#m            F#      Bm
Where it stops nobody knows 

and it ain't slowin' down    
              F#       F#7
This merry go 'round     




F#
We think the first time's good enough
                              D#m
So, we hold on to high school love
                                B  
Sayin' we won't end up like our parents
F#
Tiny little boxes in a row

Ain't what you want, it's what you know
                                B      Bm
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#  F#     B

B
Mary, Mary quite contrary
B7
We're so bored until we're buried
F#                                  D#m
Just like dust, we settle in this toooown 
        Bm              F#
On this broken merry go 'round     
               Bm
merry go 'round   



F#
Jack and Jill went up the hill
F#7
Jack burned out on booze and pills
    D#m
And Mary had a little lamb
                               F#
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

Its cool to change the key. I normally tune to the original key- No problem :)
