You can do this quite easily.

You need to remember that \chords is a shortcut for
\new ChordNames { \chordmode { }}

All you need to do is redefine the defaults for the ChordNames context.

The details for doing this are explained in the 2.11 documentation, section
5.1.4 Changing context default settings

Once you have this done, perhaps you could post the results to
the LilyPond Snippet Repository.
