Verse 1 chords: [play intro tab over chords]
Em                 G                           Am          
   Isn't a lovely night, and so alive with fireflies 
                         Em
Providing us their holy light 
                           G                 Am
And here we made a bed of boughs and thistle down 
                                        Em
That we had found to lay upon the dewy ground 

Chorus Chords:
    Em                 D  D7                     Am  D7           G     Am      
And isn't it a lovely way    we got in from our play,   isn't it babe? 
                G
A sweet little baby 

Verse 2: (use verse 1 chords)
And wasn't it a lovely breeze that swept the leaves of arbor eaves 
And bent a brush o'er blushing knees 
And here we died our little deaths and we were left to catch our breath 
So swiftly lifting from our chests 

Chorus Chords:
And isn't a lovely way we got in from our play isn't it babe? 
A sweet little baby

Outro: intro chords and tabs 2x (in accordion), then

the chords sound kind of wrong, but the tab part is almost perfect.
at the end, it should be:
e|----------------------------------
B|----------------------------------
G|-------2-0------0-----------------
D|----4------4--2---4--2--0----0----
A|---------------------------4----2-
E|----------------------------------
