    The first version is more 'correct' in that the song resolves from V7 to I.

    Peter Paul and Mary does it in key of A actually, AFAIK so does John in the original version of the song. Both of the above are 'beginner' versions with easier fingering but more difficult to sing correctly.

    I just saw your second version - it's a screwed up cut and paste. All the first lines of each verse are together, and the second lines are all together. Are you lifting it off some site?

    Wasn't that clear - thought you were posting a transcription.

    I'm not sure of the Armageddon version chords, don't have the song.

    Same for the John version, but I think it was in A, and he sometimes played it in C in concerts when he had too much to drink the night before.

    It sounds the best in A, and there are only three chords anyway, so...

    Replace C with A, F with D and G7 with E7 (there is no E played throughout the song). Play open chords, they sound the best for this song unless you're doing a remix or something.

    The song sounds better if it starts with a G7 and Chorus goes C F C F....
