Thumbing the baseline is important throughout the whole song. 
If you listen to the recording, the chord changes move straight with
the guitar baseline and thats how I judged some of the chord changes I made.

In the verse, the low E descends on the first line and the
A descends on the second line, then goes back up to reset
for the third line, which goes down all the way from the A to the E.  
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro: G


Verse 1:
G                  D*             Em   G           D*             Em
Here's the hymn to welcome in the day, heralding a summer's early sway
                             C    C/B      Am    C/B
And all the bulbs all coming in   to begin
    C                 C/B             Am                G/Am     D*
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens disrupts my reverie again


Verse 2: [Use verse 1 chords]
Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine up the arbor to your door, and more
You're standing on the landing with the war you shouldered all the night before


Chorus 1: 
C                  D*                    G               C 
And once upon it,  the yellow bonnets,  garland all the lawn
Am                    D*                     G              C
And you were waking   and day was breaking,  a panoply of song
D                   C/G         G
And summer comes to Springville Hill


Verse 3: [use verse 1 chords]
A barony of ivy in the trees, expanding out its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst to bloom, in the boom
Heaven sent this cardinal maroon to decorate our living room


Chorus 2: [use chorus 1 chords]
Once upon it, yellow bonnets, garland all along
You were waking, day was breaking, a panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill


Bridge:
C               D*                Em          C
And years from now when this old light isn't ambling anymore
Am      D/F#            G      D*        Em 
Will I bring myself to writ-e-ite-e-ite-ite-e-ite
C                 D*           G
I give my best to Springville Hill


Interlude: [G - Em - G - Em], then
           [C - C/B - Am - G/Am], then
           [C - C/B - Am - G/Am - D/F#]


Chorus 3: [use chorus 1 chords]
Once upon it, yellow bonnets, garland all along
You were waking, day was breaking, a panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville Hill
