Standard tuning, Capo 4

Em                 B7 
I am a chimbley, a chimbley sweep
Am
No bed to lie, no shoes to hold my feet
Em                   B7
Upon the rooftops in dead of night
Am                                           Em
You’ll hear me cry, I’ll shake you from your sleep
           G
To hear me weep
      D               C
"Your day will come indeed
Em         G          C        Am
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Em       B7       Em
A chimbley chimbley sweep."


Em              B7
I am an orphan, an orphan boy
Am
I’ve known no love, I’ve seen no mother’s joy
Em               B7
A dirty doorstep my cradle laid
Am                                          Em
My fortune's made: I’ll shake you from your sleep
           G
To hear me weep
      D               C
"Your day will come indeed.
Em         G          C        Am
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Em       B7       Em
A chimbley chimbley sweep."


 Em                B7
"O lonely urchin!" the widow cried
 Am
"I’ve not been swept since the day my husband died."
Em                         B7
Her cheeks a blushing, her legs laid bare
Am                                             Em
And shipwrecked there I’ll shake you from your sleep
           G
To hear me weep
      D               C
"Your day will come indeed.
Em         G          C        Am
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Em       B7       Em
A chimbley chimbley sweep."
Em         G          C        Am
For I am a poor and a wretched boy
  Em       B7       Em
A chimbley chimbley sweep."

I believe that your A minor chord should be an A7, or at the very least, an A major.
