hey just a correction on one of the chords...
the Amaj7 (x02120) should be Em6 (022120):

so verse is played...
Amaj---------------Asus?---A/F#
Her green plastic watering can

----------------------Em6---Dsus2
For her fake chinese rubber plant

-------------Amaj---------Dsus2
In the fake plaaaaaastic earth

(Amaj = x02220, A/F# = 2x0220, Em6 = 022120, Dsus2 = xx0230)

and OUTRO:
And if I could be who you wanted
A
If I could be who you wanted
Dsus2 A
All the time All the time

mmmm mmmm mmmm

Dsus2 A Dsus2 A (1 strum finish)
