Chord Req: Joe Hill songs

I've been trying to track down chords for some Joe Hill lyrics and can't seem to find anything on the web. I've found some lyrics but no chords. Is there someplace i haven't looked? Can someone help me with chords for The Rebel Girl & Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! to start off. Any help would be gratefully accepted.
Thank you.

I have messaged Mark, and I'm sure he'll atend to this when he can. He's a union guy all the way. One of the many things I admire about him.

Peace, there's a short intro (in G) G for 2 bars, C for 2 bars, the A7, D7 and G repectively for the last 3 bars.
THE REBEL GIRL

G                  C      G         G7
There are women of many descriptions
         C             Cm       G
In this queer world, as every one knows,
                   C         G
Some are living in beautiful mansions,
         A7                D
And are wearing the finest clothes.
D7       G            C             G
There are blue-blooded queens and princesses,
G7       C                           B
Who have charms made of diamonds and pearl;
G       E7                   Am
But the only and Thoroughbred Lady
       A7 D7 G
ls the Rebel Girl.



Chorus..
G                                 C
That's the Rebel Girl. That's the Rebel Girl.
       D       D7             G
To the working class she's a precious pearl.
                               D7
She brings courage, pride and joy
                      G
To the Fighting Rebel Boy

We've had girls before
       C
But we need some more
          D       C             B
In the Industrial Workers of the World
         E7                AM
For it's great to fight for freedom
C      G D7 G
With a Rebel Girl.

These are the chords as printed in The Songs of Joe Hill

The IWW's Little Red Songbook still has many Joe Hill songs, and gives the chords.
