My first tab. I derived this from some live videos of John Fogerty playing this tune 
and these are the chords he seems to be using. It's notably different from the original 
by John Prine.

Intro: F

F                     F               F
When I was a child my family would travel
                                 G             F
Down to Western Kentucky where my parents were born
                                      F            F
And there's a backwards old town that's often remembered
                   G               F
So many times that my memories are worn

Chorus:
F                                   F             F
And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County
                        G              F
Down by the green river where paradise lay?
                                   F             F
Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking
                               G          F
Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away

Well, sometimes we'd travel right down the Green River
To the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill
Where the air smelled like snakes and we'd shoot with our pistols
But empty pop bottles was all we would kill

Chorus

Then the coal company came with the world's largest shovel
And they tortured the timber and stripped all the land
Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken
Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man

Chorus

(Muted Strings)
When I die let my ashes float down the Green River
Let my soul roll on up to the Rochester dam
I'll be halfway to Heaven with paradise waitin'
Just five miles away from wherever I am

Chorus
