Chord Req: Weirdest Tom Paxton Song

I'm here talking about an obscure Tom Paxton song called "May God Bless This Wedding ". Its melody is so weird that the first time I listened to it, I thought it was out of tune. I think the song's melody has some sort of Asian music feeling. Can anybody try to figure out the chords it uses? Thanks

There's a link at that video to a site where there are chords, no? I'd call the feeling Middle Eastern.

Those are just the regular chords for a song in the key of F. No unusual chords used.

Its D minor , rather than F or possible one of the modal keys - Couldn't be bothered working on it !
