(as the last line of last verse or after last verse repeat last line;
 swap 2nd last C chord with F 
 and last bar of C single strum or root note... or just do your own thing)

Lyric variation: I like to sing: Fare "thee" well to Tipp... 
timing stays the same as Fare Thee become two 1/8 notes instead of fare as a 1/4 note
