Have you tried using multiple voices instead of chords?

In Lilypond 1.7, chords have a more universal syntax (which I really like)
but it appears you can not affect individual notes (which causes some
problems for me).

You can adjust the position of the text with

\property Voice.TextScript \override #'extra-offset = #'( a . b )
\property Voice.TextScript \revert    #'extra-offset

or use the \once operator.  I think ( a . b ) is horizontal, then
vertical.  Movement is in staff-space distance.

Hope this helps.
