The chord that should go with the word "morn" is F#7. Without it, the song doesn't sound right, so even beginners will have to have that chord or play easier songs. Also the A in the third line is best over the word "Dinah." Last line: the A goes over the word "old" not "on." Rarely is the beat on a preposition. The last singing of "Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah" aches to have a D7 over "kitchen." And for the name Dinah there, "Di" with a G and "nah" with a diminished chord G#dim makes the song zing though I guess beginners could skip it.
