Chords Req: Old Devil Time (Pete Seeger)

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

Please, could somebody help with guitar chords for Pete Seeger's "Old Devil Time"?

I'd like to sing it at a walk to raise money to
"D'Feet" ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in October.

Thanks
I moved this message here from another thread on the same topic.

Hello Mudcatters,

   One of my students, impressed by the renewed interest in Seeger songs, has asked to learn "Old Devil Time". I got a friend to send me a version that I can play on my computer but, being the very soul of sloth, I am hoping to avoid the hassle of chording it out for him. do any of you know the chords that Pete uses? If you e-mail me the arrangement, I can print it out and claim that I did it all myself. I thank you.

Here it is:

G         C6-D7             G
Old Devil Time, I'm going to fool you now!
          C6-D7       G                D7
Old devil time, you'd like to bring me down!
G       C6       D7            G
When I'm feeling low, my lovers gather round
            C       Am       D7       G
And help me rise to fight you one more time.


Old devil fear, you with your icy hands,
Oldl deveil fear, you'd like to freeze me cold!
When I'm sore afraid, my lovers gather round
And help me rise to fight you one more time.


Old devil pain you often pinned me down,
You thought I'd cry and beg you for the end.
But at that very time, my lovers gather round
And help me rise to fight you one more time!

Old devil hate, I knew you long ago,
Then I found out the poison in your breath.
Now when we hear your lies, my lovers gather round
And help me rise to fight you one more time!

No storm nor fire can ever beat us down,
No wind that blows but carries us further on.
And you who fear, oh lovers, gather round
And we can rise and sing it one more time!

by Pete Seeger 1969

I'm a bit annoyed that my chords above don't line up as I wrote them. In the first line, the Am-C-D starts with the word "Time", the G is on "fool" and the Em is actually between the first and second lines. In the second line, the Am is o "Time", the C is o "like", the D is on "down", and the C-D is between the second and third lines. In the third line, the C is on "feeling", the D is after "low", the G is on "gather", and Em is between the third and fourth lines. In the fourth line, the C is on "rise", the D is on "fight", the G is on "time", the C-D is after the fourth line, and the G leads you into the next verse.
