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

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

Add the basenote variations on the first chord!

Great tab. Just wanted to suggest a few edits.
The G chord seems to sound something like this (minus the rhythm):


e|-------------------------------|
B|--0--0--0--0-------------------|
G|--0--0--0--0-------------------|
D|--0--0--0--0-------------------|
A|--2--4--5--2-------------------|
E|--3--3--3--3-------------------|

Also, I think the intro/verse section should look like:

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------0-----------------------------------0-|
G|------------0-4--0-4-2-0----2-0-------0-----------0-|
D|------0-2-4---0-----------4-----4---2----4-2-0--0-0-|
A|--2-4---------2-------------------------------4---2-|
E|--------------3-----------------------------------3-|
