Fmaj7                         Dm7     Gm7
Among the fields of straw and stover,
                   G7
Clocked in 'til the work day's over.
Em              A7      Dm7            E7
Time's a gentle stream, longer than it seems.
Am            Am7/G  Am6/F#     
Patient is the night.
Fmaj7                     Dm7       Gm7
Oh, how I long to see her face now-
           G7
Her starry moonlit gaze now.
Em                 A7
I know she's never late,
Dm7
Still anxiously I wait.
Am7/G          Am6/F#   
Patient is the night.

I play this song in G major because it's easier to voice the chords and pluck the bass notes and strum the chord to preserve the style.

That said: The chord over the word "Seems" I've changed from your original because the melody note clashes with the chord. Example: In F major you would sing a Bb in the melody which would clash against the B natural of the E7 you have written. In G major it is a C in the melody that clashes with the C# of an F#7 chord.

In G major, this new change leads nicely into the next two chords because they share the same shape. If you look at my chords below you'll notice that the Cm chord goes into a Bm chord then to a Bb minor chord allowing the player to just slide the same shape down a fret and get a gentle melancholy motion down the neck while still preserving the bass notes.

The last two chords of the stanza I changed to a simple ii-V-I progression which rounds out the phrases as a whole by leading to the next strophe .

My corrections are for the sake of making the song more accessible to the player and are not intended to be a direct reflection of the original tune nor a criticism of your excellent work of bringing this delightful tune to others.
