Verse 1: (verse riff)
Hush, little girl
Sweet baby don't cry, tonight
Daddy is here and he'll sing you a soft lullaby, tonight

Pre-chorus:
Am           C              G     D
Why can't it all be like it was before?
Am           C                    G        D
How can I explain why mommy's not here, anymore?

Chorus:
       G           D         Em         C
'Cause daddy likes porno and ten-dollar whores
G          D          Em          C
Daddy gets wasted and robs liquor stores 
G           D        Em            C           G   D
Daddy likes rubbing against little boys on the bus 
        Em         C          G  D  Em
I think that's why mommy left us
C          G  D  D
Mommy left us

Verse 2: (verse riff)
Hush, little girl 
There is no reason to fret, tonight 
Don't mind the smoke, daddy just wants to forget, tonight

Pre-chorus:
Am           C              G     D
Soon it will all be like it was before 
Am  C                     G                  D     D
Any minute, she will walk through that front door 

Chorus:
    G           D         Em             C
But daddy plays poker and drinks lots of beer 
G             D          Em             C
Then he wants sex that involves mommy's rear
G         D            Em            C           G    D
Daddy has sores on his naughty parts oozing with pus
        Em         C          G   D  G  D
I think that's why mommy left us 

Bridge:
C            D
Please don't cry
  C          D
I swear I'll try
   C       Am      D
To be here by your side 

Verse 3:
G           D          Em            C
Right after daddy gets home from the bar 
G          D          Em           C
Visits his bookee and steals a new car 
      G            D              Em       C               G      D
He'll drive to the strip club and if daddy plays his cards right 
            Em            C       G
He'll bring home your new mommy tonight

Outro:
D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C  G  D  Em  C  G
Lah dee die... etc.

Good good good. But you should retranscribe the intro so that the notes are relative to the capo. So it'd be:
e-------0------
B-----3---3----
G---0-------0--
D-------------- etc...
A--------------
E-0------------
