Looks like someone corrected the missing C chord at end of verses. Lyrics are straight out of the Live at Folsom Prison album, except June Carter sings "Go comb your hair", not "Comb your hair".

The verses of the song are inaccurate, C played at the end of each verse and the lyrics are wrong also.

surely G7 must resolve to C in each case. And are the verses of this song not identical.
