This is roughly how I play the song.  It can likely be improved.
Hopefully it makes sense.  In the verses, where it is written Asus4 / A, do a 
similar thing to the intro and move the fretted B string between frets 3 and 2.

Standard tuning

 Long ago, ago, ago, ago before the war

Dsus2
Contractors to her majesty's government we were

Bm                     Dsus2
dealers in honest trade

Dm                                   C 
there were some mighty queer folk about

Dsus2                                        Asus4 / A
but most were honest workers and knew their place

Dsus2
I was a skilled craftsmen, mark you

Bm                                  Dsus2
the work was hard and the hours were long

Dm                     C 
Ah, but there was a maiden

Dsus2                 Asus4 / A
and her name was Marjorie

Dsus2                                 
Long black hair she had like a gypsy

Bm                                   Dsus2
And the prettiest smile I'd ever seen

Dm                   C
and I called her an angel

Dsus2                   Asus4 / A   Dm
and I was right, she was

Dm            G               C
Then there was a war, the war

D5        C          A#    A
Forging a pathway for freedom

D5      C       D5       A
using resources we need them

D5                      C
though are foes are human beings we stand between them

D5                 A
and a life we do condone

D5             C          A#      A
shipped out to Belgium to starve them

D5             C               D5       A
plastered and shelled them but lost ground

D5                 C
bombs and rockets, V2's over London city

D5                    A
and the world at their command

   D5       C       A#    A
And back in Yeadon, Marjorie

D5        C      A#   A
stood beneath a factory

D5      C         A#      G
I was assured she felt okay

Withdrawn from Dunkirk in cruisers

who cares says I, we're all losers

D5                     C
No one wins both sides the victims of our nature

D5               A
May the future learn

D5          C       A#    A
and back in Yeadon, Marjorie
