 Baby you know

I think the words for the last line of of the first verse are:
The horns are blowing louder and the bailliff's drawing near

It took listening to several versions and checking several web sites to figure that one out. :-)

I think the Am is toggled on the first fret throughout the song and he hits the bass notes between the strum pattern to create a beat.
