The first guitar tab shows the melody line and the lyrics to the first verse. I think that it's a good idea to listen to the melody until you're very familiar with it. That will help you to get the most out of this free guitar lesson.
Then there's an arrangement using the first 2 fingers together. They pluck the first two strings while the thumb plays an alternating bass. Look out for how the bass pattern shifts in measure 4. When you're playing a G chord the bass pattern is 6th string, 5th string. Low pitch to higher pitch.
At measure 4 of this online guitar lesson, the pattern changes to 4th string, 5th string. Higher pitch to lower pitch.
The second tab continues with the alternating bass. The fingers get a little busier than they did in example 1. Now they begin playing a simple pattern.
