Kate Rusby – The Holly And The Ivy chords

Chords
Transpose:
These are the Chords for Kate Rusby's «The Holly and The Ivy» from her album «Christmas
Kate». These are NOT the chords to the normal song, so please don't expect them to be.
Any part in brakets () is an optional bar. I have worked this out on the accordion and 
piano, without the use of a guitar or a copy of the track, so I am not entirely sure what
key it is in, or where to put the capo, the chords may not even be correct, but they 
certainly sound nice and work wonders when busking. Enjoy!
