Take out all the F#m. It doesn't sound good with them. The last line of the chorus 'the swans that swim so bonny oh', you don't need the Bm.

So basically, I play it:

Bm G D A
Bm G Bm A
Bm G D
G A

To be very honest, it sounded quite bad at the beginning, but I think you just have to get your voice to the right pitch. 3*.

I think this is much more accurate (but not perfect)

Intro (and between verses): Bm A

Bm G D A
A farmer there lived in the North Country
Bm G D/F# A
A hey-ho hey bonny oh
Bm A G D
He had daughters one two three
G A
The swans swim so bonny oh

I haven't sussed out the full instrumental section, maybe it's just the verse chords.

Well, you could play it with those shapes. Or then again, you could put a capo on the 2nd fret, and play it in good, old, "cowboy C".

Thus: Am, F, C, G, and sort of finger pick your way through some random licks during the progression..
