"Summertime" - Music by George Gershwin, lyrics by DuBose Heyward. 
From the 1935 opera, "Porgy and Bess."

[Verse 1]

Am
   Summertime, 
E7                   Am
   And the livin' is easy
Dm
   Fish are jumpin'
F                    E7
   And the cotton is high


[Chorus]

Am
   Oh, Your daddy's rich
E7                        Am
   And your mamma's good lookin'
F
   So hush little baby
E7            Am
   Don't you cry


[Verse 2]

Am
   One of these mornings
E7                          Am
   You're going to rise up singing
Dm
   Then you'll spread your wings
F                          E7
   And you'll take to the sky


[Bridge]

Am
   But until that morning
E7                        Am
   There's a'nothing can harm you
F                           E7       Am
   With your daddy and mammy standing by


[Verse]

Am
   Summertime, 
E7                   Am
   And the livin' is easy
Dm
   Fish are jumpin'
F                    E7
   And the cotton is high


[Chorus]

Am
   Oh, Your daddy's rich
E7                        Am
   And your mamma's good lookin'
F
   So hush little baby
E7            Am
   Don't you cry

This is the same chords as the other ones but laid out much better and it has the refrain of the first two verses.

Love the simplicity of this one since it allows beginners to see the fundamental changes of the song. (And once you've mastered this one you can move on to the more complicated versions.)

A correction would be the alignment of the Dm chord. It should be over the word "jumping" (and "wings" in the second verse).
