I've tried to arrange the brass harmonies for guitar. hmmm ;-)

[intro & chorus]:

             G Em            G G(0) D
     I'm going upfield        way up on the hillside
     I'm going higher         than I've ever been before
thats where youll find me         way up in the hillside

                  G    Em(0)             D      G(0)        D
wading in the river        reaching for that other shore


        Em(0)          D           G(0)        Em(0)    G(0)    D
    I dreamed I saw a tree full of angels       up on Primrose Hill
 and I flew    with  them   over  the Great Wen till I seen my fill
of such pov---er------ty    and  misery sure to tear my soul  apart

               Em(0) D  G(0) Am*     G(0)   D
||: I've got a so---cialism  of the heart      :||  x2


the angels asked me how I felt about all I'd seen and heard
that they spoke to me, a pagan, gave me cause to doubt their word
but they laughed and said it doesn't matter if you help us in our
||: you've got a socialism of the heart      :||  x2


their faces shone and they were gone and I was left alone
and I walked these ancient empire streets till I came tearful to my
and when I woke next morning, I vowed to play my part

||: I've got a socialism of the heart      :||  x2


*Am in the last line of the verse might be an Em(0).

Em is :
 |  |  |  |  |  |
 |__|__1__1__1__1   3rd fret
 |  |  |  |  |  |
 |  |  |  |  |  |
 |__|__3__|__4_(4)    so when you go from G->Em,
 |  |  |  |  |  |     don't move your 1st & 2nd fingers
