Chord Req: To My Old Brown Earth (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

Hello,

I had a good friend pass away, and I would like to sing and play Pete's "To My Old Brown Earth" for the memorial.

I am new to the guiar, and can't figure out the chords. Could someone please help me?

I would be forever grateful.

Sincerely,

Andy

For the record, the lyrics are here (click) in the Digital Tradition. Most of Pete's songs are in his book, Where Have All the Flowers Gone (Sing Out, 1993). The book has the tune for this song - click the link below to play or download my MIDI. No chords, though. Most of the songs in the book have chords, but not this one.
