This song is originally by Malvina Reynolds, but I do it the way my friend Seth Martin does it. He's tweaked the chords and melody somewhat — I feel like it enhances an already fabulous song, giving it a more triumphant feel. Really, really fun to sing.

At the very least, I think it's a way of playing "God Bless The Grass" that's worth putting out there, and so far — other than live performances that rock it far harder that I can on my own — Seth hasn't released in any form. Not even a decent youtube video.

The chords are:
Chorus / Am E Am - /
Verse / Am - E Am / E - Am - / C - G - / F - CE Am
[Slashes indicate line divisions in the lyrics, hyphens that you keep playing the previous chord. Technically, Seth plays a Am instead of a C in that last line, but I find C works better on the ukelele.]

Please check out Seth Martin's music:
Also listen to Malvina Reynolds original (and more songs from this incredible songwriter):
And for an easy-to-learn version of the song, done the original way, see the one from Matthew Vaughan's "Rise Up Singing Project":

P.S. The reason you're being exposed to my hairy leg (sorry) is 'cause I biked to get to the railway bridge, and I forgot to roll one of my pant legs back up.

Naturally, a couple of weeks of posting this, someone put up a decent live video of Seth Martin (and Friends) playing this song.
It'll give you a rough idea of how crazy live of it performances get.
