The key of the song denotes what notes fit into the song. Any combination of these notes put into a chord should sound okay. For example, the key of C Major has the notes C D E F G A and B. So all kinds of chords fit: C, Cmaj7 (which is the notes C E G B), Dm (which is D F A), G7 (which is G B D F). You have many choices in any key, not to mention all the inversions of these chords.
Stop whining and learn your theory!

Most of the time in modern music, the key is denoted by what the first chord of the song is. If the first chord is C then the key is probably C Major. This is not any king rule and you should really analyze each chord in a song to figure out what scale all (or almost all) the notes fit in. If you are writing a song and you have the first chord as C, and want to know where to go next you need to establish a key. Take the notes of the C (C E G) and look at all the scales that those notes fit into (basically C major). Then go from there using what I explained earlier.

All of this requires a decent grasp of music theory. So you may want to start learning it. The crusades articles in the columns section (link in my sig) is a good place to start.

........... or if you dont know theory, trial and error, till something sounds good. in fact chords of a song arent always limited to a particular key anyway.
