9 chords used in this song

From the musical "The Hunting of the Snark". For simplicity, I have omitted the key changes.

Then the Banker endorsed a blank cheque (which he crossed)
And changed his loose silver for notes
The Baker with care combed his whiskers and hair
And shook the dust out of his coats
The maker of Bonnets ferociously planned
A novel arrangement of bows
While the Billiard-marker with quivering hand
Was chalking the tip of his nose
GD
