Thread Name: Odd chord progression in Tom Paxton song
Subject: Chords Add: I Don't Want Your Pardon (Tom Paxton)
Yes. I agree with Paul that the song could actually be in G, though it begins with E major and ends with E major, and there isn't even a G chord used in all its main verses.

I've posted the chords to the song on my website a while back:

E                         C                   E
I don't want your pardon, don't want your amnesty.
C                   D             E
Don't you smile with Christian sympathizing.
C                                  E
Don't you tell me you're forgiving me.
C          D       E
I am doing no apologizing.
