There are 6 chords that are repeated through the whole song.
C-G-Bb-F-G#-G and back to C

It's played on an organ. So if you play it on a piano the right hand plays the chords 
while the left hand plays the tunes: C-B-Bb-A-Ab-G-C

If you want to play it on guitar use the first chords

C               G
in the yard, behind the church where
Bb                F
butterflies and blackbirds search for
G#              G                 C
a safe place to rest the night away
C               G
we will go down to the brook and
Bb           F
sit upon the overlook then
G#                 G             C
forget about the troubles of the day

*Here comes the part with a sliding guitar or something*


we will walk among the graves of
men long dead with presidents' names and
listen to the water flow softly by
i will kiss you on the lips now
and as the sky grows dark we'll strip down
and let the water wash away all lies

C-G-Bb-F-G#-G-C x2

in the yard, behind the church where
butterflies and blackbirds perch on
gray stones as the garden's growing dim
we will lay down on the ground and
put our cheeks against the dirt down
where it no longer matters
where you've been

C-G-Bb-F-G#-G-C repeat to end.
