My first contribution on here as I noticed this song was missing.
It's a beautiful song and straightforward to play albeit I use a capo at
Fret1 because it suits my voice better. I also find these better chords to
use than those Harry Chapin uses as he seems to play it open fret in D (you
can achieve this with by putting the capo at Fret 2).  The only other change
is he changes key for the last verse but that doesn't work for me.  Anyhow
here it is and I hope it works for you.

Mail Order Annie (Harry Chapin)

Fret 1 or 2 (Chapin plays it in D)

Intro: C Em Am F G G7


    C              Em                 Am
At first I did not think it could be you
     F                                     G     G7
But you're the only one that got off the train
   E             E7              Am            Am7
So you must be my wife Miss Annie Halsey, yes, yes
F                        G             G7
I must be your husband. Yes, I'm Harry Crane


C          Em     F               C
Mail order Annie, never mind your cryin'
               Em               F     G   G7
Your tears are sweet rain in my empty life
C          Em     F                 C
Mail order Annie, can't you see I'm tryin'
   F                 C           
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
F               G
You who are the woman 
      F       G     C
Who's come to be my wife


    C                  Em          Am
You know you're not as pretty as I dreamed you'd be
     F                             G     G7
But then I'm not no handsome fancy Dan
    E                  E7         Am            Am7
And out here looks are really not important, no, no
     F                                G              G7
It's what's inside a woman when she's up against the land


C          Em     F               C
Mail order Annie, never mind your cryin'
               Em               F     G   G7
Your tears are sweet rain in my empty life
C          Em     F                 C
Mail order Annie, can't you see I'm tryin'
   F                 C           
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
F               G
You who are the woman 
      F       G     C     Em  Am
Who's come to be my wife


    Am                                Bbmaj7
You know it's not no easy life you're entering
    Am                                          Bbmaj7
The winter wind comes whistlin' through the cracks there in the sod
    Am                               F
You know you'll never have too many neighbours
        Am                       Dm7          G  G7
There's you babe, and there's me, and there's God


C                   Em                Am
You know I'm just a dirt man from the North Dakota plains
       F                                 G
You're one girl from the city who's been thrown out on her own
        E                 E7              Am       Am7
And I'm standing here not sure of what to say to you
         F                       G             G7
'Ceptin' mail order Annie, let's you and me go home


C          Em     F               C
Mail order Annie, never mind your cryin'
               Em               F     G   G7
Your tears are sweet rain in my empty life
C          Em     F                 C
Mail order Annie, can't you see I'm tryin'
   F                 C           
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
F               G
You who are the woman 
      F       G     C
Who's come to be my wife


C Em Am F G G7
