I like to play the chorus this way,

D Asus2 Em
Ear-ly in the morning
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
D
Hooray, and up she rises
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
D Asus2 Em
Ear-ly in the morning

D = X00232 to X00032
Asus2 = 002200 or A5 = 0022XX to 00200X
Em = 022000

or as an alterrnate for the whole song use D & C or D & Cadd9 for the verse and chorus then becomes C or Cadd9 to G to D. You can use a D Harmonica if it's played this way. Enjoy!
