INTRO and POST-CHORUS

The intro is G but then he hammers on (and pulls off) on the D and B strings 
(essentially making a C with G bass):

e|--3--3----|
B|--0--h1---|
G|--0--0----|
D|--0--h2---|
A|--x--x----|
E|--3--3----|

So strum a G, then hammer on, strum a few more, then pull off on a strum. Repeat four 
times. Listen to the song for exact timing.


VERSE


G                G/F#           Em      Em*
Here's a hymn to welcome in the day
G           G/F#           Em
Heralding a summer's early sway
            Em*              C   C/B   Am7    [Am7 C/B]
And all the bulbs all coming in ... to begin
C                     C/B             Am7                C/G     D9/F#
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens disrupts my reverie again
G          G/F#            Em      Em*
   Pegging clothing on the line
G           G/F#           Em
   Training Jasmine how to vine
       Em*            C    C/B     Am7   [Am7 C/B]
Up the arbour to your door ... and more
C                      C/B              Am7                C/G           D9/F#
You're standing on the landing with the war you shouldered all the night before


CHORUS


C               D
   Once upon it,  yellow bonnets
G                  C**
   Garland all the lawn
Am7                D
   You were waking,  day was breaking
G               C**
   A panoply of song
Dsus4               C**
    Summer comes to Springville Hill

G [INTRO] x2


VERSE


G           G/F#       Em       Em*
A barony of ivy in the trees
G                 G/F#      Em
Expanding out its empire by degrees
            Em*               C     C/B        Am7    [Am7 C/B]
And all the branches burst to bloom ... in the boom
C                C/B      Am7            C/G             D9/F#
Heaven sent this cardinal marooon to decorate our living room


CHORUS


C               D
   Once upon it,  yellow bonnets
G                  C**
   Garland all the lawn
Am7                D
   You were waking,  day was breaking
G               C**
   A panoply of song
Dsus4               C**
    Summer comes to Springville Hill

G [INTRO] x2 but halfway through the second time:

D|-----
A|-0-2-
E|-----

C             D                 Em          C
   Years from now when this old light isn't ambling anymore
Am7       D                G G/F# Em Em C
   Will I bring my self to wri-ei-ei-ei-iiite
                  Dsus4         G [INTRO]
I give my best to Springville Hill


[VERSE chords during harmonica solo]


CHORUS


C               D
   Once upon it,  yellow bonnets
G                  C**
   Garland all the lawn
Am7                D
   You were waking,  day was breaking
G               C**
   A panoply of song
Dsus4               C**               G [INTRO]
    Summer comes to Springville Hill
Dsus4               C               G
   Summer comes to Springville Hill

Great tab! If it helps anyone, the harmonica part is straight harp (as opposed to cross harp), so you'll need a harmonica in the key of A.
