Holy Molly, isn't this new album by The Maine just amazing? Here's my acoustic version for American Candy!
Don't hesitate to leave your corrections below! The song is basically built around 3 chords: Gm, Eb and Bb 
(or Em, C and G, if you put a capo on 3rd fret). Also there's  F (or D with capo on 3rd) in the bridge.

Capo on 3rd fret



    

Intro: Em C G

Verse 1:

Em              C               G
What will you do on the weekends
Em                      
When your best friends
C                        G
Become your dead friends?
Em
From all the sugar
C                    G
And all the sweetness
Em                   
This little sweet tooth
C                  G
It is your weakness



    


Chorus:

G                      Em
They've got american candy
                    C           G
You're sweet and sated, so sedated
                  Em
For the american kids
                     C              G
You're hooked and baited, annihilated
             Em
Even if you wanted to
                        C             G
You couldn't stop it's just so sweet
                   Em       
But this american candy
C               Em        C       G
It'll rot your teeth

Verse 2:

Em                   C                  G
Try to think back to back to a time when
Em                       C                   G
You loved what you loved because you loved it
Em
Before the sugar
C                    G
And all the sweetness
Em
Filled up your lungs now
C                     G
It's all you breath in

Chorus:

G                      Em
They've got american candy
                    C           G
You're sweet and sated, so sedated
                  Em
For the american kids
                     C              G
You're hooked and baited, annihilated
             Em
Even if you wanted to
                        C             G
You couldn't stop it's just so sweet
                   Em       
But this american candy
C               G
It'll rot your teeth, your teeth, your!


Bridge (C-G-Em-D all the way):

C                               G
Sometimes I feel as though I'm going mad when
Em                      D
I get a touch of saccharine on my lips
C                            G
I hate the taste on my tongue too damn sweet
Em            D             C        G        Em
I don't fancy american candy

D             C       G       Em       D
American candy

C (one stroke)


Chorus:

                     Em
They've got american candy
                    C           G
You're sweet and sated, so sedated
                  Em
For the american kids
                     C              G
You're hooked and baited, annihilated
             Em
Even if you wanted to
                        C             G
You couldn't stop it's just so sweet
                   Em       
But this american candy
C               G
It'll rot your teeth

Until your gums the bleed

Coda (C-G-Em-D):
C                            G
I hate the taste on my tongue too damn sweet
Em             D
I don't fancy american candy,
C    G                   Em          D
Oh, you're so-so-so sweet and sated, baby
C                            G
I hate the taste on my tongue too damn sweet
Em             D
I don't fancy american candy

Finish on C
