Staves, lyrics, chords and all other kind of "contexts" in LilyPond
are typeset in the order they first appear in your \score{...} block.
For example, in the "3.1.3 Notes and chords" example in the manual,
just rewrite the \score{...} block into:
\score {
    \context Staff = one \melody
    \context ChordNames {
      \set chordChanges = ##t

How can I get lilypond to position a row of chord names below the staff instead of above? (I.e where lyrics are normally positioned).

We have a lot of existing music with chords in this position, mostly generated by sibelius or handwritten, and it gets confusing if the chords are in different places.
