This is Skidaddy, Esq. (G.Q.) letting everyone out there know that the file posted here was altered from the original I sent in. It looks as if someone put in a carriage return @ the end of the chorus, so the chords are all out of whack. All the E's beneath the E & B should be in line w/ the 2 E's after the A on the line above. Also, the E's above the next verse should be as follows:
E E E E
...she learned to cook the meals and she learned to start the fire;

P.S.: Each chord signifies the start of a measure.

Well, it's Skidaddy Esq. (G.Q.), again. Let's try this again:

...the E's above the next verse should be as follows:
-------E-------------------E-------------E--------------------E
...she learned to cook the meals and she learned to start the fire;

let's see how that turns out...
