[Intro] 

D  Dsus2 x2     
G  G2  x2


[Verse]

   D                  Dsus2
If you ain't got two kids by 21,
D                Dsus2                     G
Youre probably gonna die alone
          G2                        G                       G2
At least that's what tradition told you.
 D                  Dsus2
And it don't matter if you don't believe, 
D                  Dsus2                 G                
come sunday morning you best be there
G2                        G         G2
in the front row, like your s'posed to.


[Pre-Chorus]

Gm/A#                Dsus2    D
Same hurt in every heart.
Gm/A#                       Asus4   A
Same trailer, different park.


[Chorus]

G
Mamas hooked on Mary Kay
Brothers hooked on Mary Jane
    D
And Daddies hooked on Mary two doors down.
G
Mary Mary quite contrary,
we get bored so we get married
    Dsus2                 Dsus2/C#               Dsus2/B
and just like dust we settle in this town.
        G                                Dsus2                         Dsus2/C#                  
On this broken Merry go 'round and round and round we go, 
Dsus2/B            Asus4       G
where it stops nobody knows                                  
and it ain't slowin down, this merry go round


[Instrumental] 

(D Dsus2 x2    G G2 x2)


[Verse]

D                  Dsus2
We think the first time's good enough,
D                Dsus2                G                                
So we hold on to highschool love,
  G2                   G         G2
Say we won't end up like our parents.

D                  Dsus2
Tiny little boxes in a row, 
 D              Dsus2                     G
ain't what you want it's what you know,
   G2                                     G        G2
Just happy in the shoes your wearin.


[Pre-Chorus]

Gm/A#                       Dsus2   D
Same checks we're always cashin,
Gm/A#                             Asus4   A
to buy a little more distraction.


[Chorus]

G
Mamas hooked on Mary Kay
Brothers hooked on Mary Jane
    D
And Daddies hooked on Mary two doors down.
G
Mary Mary quite contrary,

we get bored so we get married
    Dsus2                        Dsus2/C#               Dsus2/B
and just like dust we settle in this town.
    G                              Dsus2                Dsus2/C#                  
On this broken Merry go 'round and round and round we go, 
Dsus2/B                 Asus4          G
where it stops nobody knows
                                  
and it ain't slowin down, this merry go round


[Post-Chorus]

G
Mary Mary quite contrary,
we're so bored until we're burried
    Dsus2                 Dsus2/C#               Dsus2/B
and just like dust we settle in this town.
        G                                   D   Dsus2   D  Dsus2
On this broken Merry go 'round
                    G    G2   G   G2
Merry Go 'Round


[Outro]

D
Jack and Jill went up the hill,
Dsus2/C#
Jack burned out on booze and pills,
   Dsus2/B
and mary had a little lamb,
   G              Asus4          Dsus2
mary just don't give a damn no more

the "G2" is more likely Am13/G or Am7+4/G

spelling out the notes as a chord= A C E G (B is skipped) D

spelling out the notes as they're played = G A D G C E

new to guitar, so not sure if calling it Am13/G or Am7+4/G is correct, but thought I'd chime in that it's definitely an A minor chord with additions, not a G chord.
