Capo on the second fret.
I believe these are the correct chords...

   G   Em  D  D5  Bb   F   C  Am
  (The G is actually missing the third so I should call it G5)

Intro: G  Em |C  D  |D      D5

Bb                C           G
Have you seen the Jack-in-the-Green?
Bb        F                     G
 With his long tail hanging down.
Bb                    C     G
He quietly sits under every tree
Bb     F                   G
In the folds of his velvet gown.
Bb                       C     G
He drinks from the empty acorn cup
Bb           F              G
The dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
Bb                   C        G
And he taps his cane upon the ground-
Bb         F                        G
Signal the snow drops, it's time to grow.

G   Em   C   D     D5

Bb                C           G
It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green:
Bb            F                  G
  No place to dance, no time for song.
   Bb                      C      G
He wears the colors of the summer soldier;
Bb             F                     G
   Carries the green flag all winter long.

G  Em  C   D    D5

Am                        D                         G                    F
Jack, do you never sleep?  Does the green still run deep in your heart?
Am                           D                        G                F
or will these changing times, motorways, power lines, keep us apart?
C             D
Well, I don't think so.
C          D                                    G
I saw some grass growing through the pavement today.

Bb                          C     G
(humming melody)
Bb              F                 G
(continue humming the melody)
Bb                          C     G
The Rowan, the Oak, and the Holly tree
Bb      F                       G
Are the changes left for him to groom.

G  Em  C   D     D5

Bb                             C           G
Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green."
Bb               F                          G
"Oh Jack, please help me through my winters night."
Bb                                 C     G
And-"We are the berries the on the Holly tree:
Bb             F                                   G
Oh, the Mistle Thrush is coming, Jack, put out the light."
