Somebody contacted me seeking chords for this song. Anyone?

OUTSIDE THE NASHVILLE CITY LIMITS
(Words and Music by Joan Baez)

Outside the Nashville city limits
a friend and I did drive,
on a day in early winter
I was glad to be alive.
We went to see some friends of his
who lived upon a farm.
Strange and gentle country folk
who would wish nobody harm.
Fresh-cut sixty acres,
eight cows in the barn.
But the thing that I remember
on that cold day in December
was that my eyes they did brim over
as we talked.

In the slowest drawl I had ever heard
the man said "Come with me
if y'all wanna see the prettiest place
in all of Tennesee."
He poured us each a glass of wine
and a-walking we did go,
along fallen leaves and crackling ice
where a tiny brook did flow.
He knew every inch of the land
and Lord he loved it so.
But the thing that I remember
on that cold day in December
was that my eyes were brimming over
as we walked.

He set my down upon a stone
beside a running spring.
He talked in a voice so soft and clear
like the waters I heard sing.
He said "We searched quite a time
for a place to call our own.
There was just me and Mary John
and now I guess we're home."
I looked at the ground and wondered
how many years they each had roamed.
And Lord I do remember
on that day in late December
how my eyes kept brimming over
as we talked.
As we walked.

And standing there with outstretched arms
he said to me "You know,
I can't wait till the heavy storms
cover the ground with snow,
and there on the pond the watercress
is all that don't turn white.
When the sun is high you squint your eyes
and look at the hills so bright."
And nodding his head my friend said,
"And it seems like overnight
that the leaves come out so tender
at the turning of the winter..."
I thought the skies they would brim over
as we talked.

I'm not a musician, so consider this a 1st stab at it. I'm especially unsure of the Bm on "eyes", but it was my best guess. Also, there might be a good internal chord during the 1st 4 lines, but I didn't find it.
And you can see I don't get to what I think might be a key change at the end of the 3rd verse.
So, it's just a start.
I love this song and look forward to seeing people's improvements/confirmations on these chords!

F - Outside (through) alive. We
G - went to see some C- friends of his who
F- lived upon a G- farm. Strange and gentle
C- country folk who'd F- wish nobody
G -harm. Fresh cut sixty C- acres
F - eight cows in the G- barn. But the
F - thing that I re C- member on that
G - cold day in De F-cember, was that my
Bm - eyes they did brim C- over as we
F - talked

I'll try to get at this in the next few days. No offence, but the chords in the last post are off quite a bit.

wow. that was really off-putting.
You could have simply offered the right cords without putting down the work I'd attempted.
I find that when people open with "no offense" they usually follow it with something hurtful.
and you did.
I think I'll search elsewhere for the chords to this beautiful song.

I would also like the words to this beautiful song. However, I can do without the
name calling and bickering.

Thanks

Don't know if the chords are right or not, but found this. Hope it is helpful. (Lovely song, btw.)
