Today - chords, tab and comments

Some fifty years ago I got my first record player, and started collecting vinyl. In a small, shady underground shop downtown Oslo I came across a cheap LP with a picture of a dude with a Stetson hat mounted horseback. The title was "Way out West", and neighter the cover nor the label mentioned artists or songwriters. What the fuck? I bought it unlistened to because of the low price. I regretted immediately. The content had nothing to do with western music at all, and the production was the most dubious I've ever heard, utterly pestered by second-rated anonymous (guess why?) artists. But in fact, some of the *songs* were pleasing. Especially this one, which frequently has occured in my mind for no reason. To get rid of it, I started digging. It appears to be written by Randy Sparks, the founder of The New Christy Minstrels, and first recorded by them in 1964. In 1969 by Bobby Goldsboro, and in 1974 by John Denver - the ulimate version. And here it is:
C                  Am             Dm          G
today  while the blossoms still cling to the vine
      C               Am             Dm              G
I'll taste your strawberries  I'll drink your sweet wine
   C         C7           Dm         Bdim
a million tomorrows shall all pass away
C         Am          Dm          G
ere I forget all the joy that is mine

C          Am       Dm         G
I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover
         C        Am         D           G
you'll know who I am by the songs that I sing
      C             Am           Dm            G
I'll feast at your table  I'll sleep in your clover
     F               G            C   ....G7
