Here is another version a found looking at the guitar player 

(Capo : 5th fret)

G                  Em
Hush now, don't you wake up
         G          Em
We'll be leaving at first light
       Am           G
Mama's buying you a mockingbird
   Bm          C
To lull you through the night

      G                Em
We'll cross the Dan by morning
         G                  Em
Here's a blanket for you to share
        Am               G
They're building down in Georgia
      Bm            C
Daddy hears he'll find work there

[--------------BEGIN CHORUS---------------]
        Am                G
And the mockingbird can't sing
         Bm           C
Like the crying of a dove
    Am               G
And I can't tell my daughters
All the things that I'm scared of
    C         G                    Bm        C
But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above
Am            G             Bm        C            
Dying's just another way to leave the ones you love
[--------------END CHORUS---------------]

   G            Em
No work for the working man
     G              Em
Just one more empty mill
Am            G
Hard times in Rockingham
Bm           C
Hard times harder still

    G                Em
The crows are in the kitchen
    G              Em
The wolves at the door
    Am               G       Bm   C
Our fathers' land of Eden is paradise no more


   G               Em
My sister stayed in Eden
    G                Em
Her husband's got some land
   Am            G                  Bm                C
An agent for the county thinks that they might make a stand
  G            Em
A hard life of working
     G               Em
With nothing much to show
  Am           G            Bm    C
A long life of leaving with nowhere to go
