First guitar plays the intro while the second strums once each accord.
Just listen to the original song and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Am G Am A lonely bard wandering across the lands am I Am G Am Singing dancing finding answers to every why Am7/E G Am The taverns are full and one crosses my path, too F Em Am I just might reward myself with a beer or two Am G Am This inn the place of many romantic tales Am G Am On the loft women offer their sales Am7/E G Am But my eyes they catch a girl beat by everyone F Em Am A slave she is but for me a rose undone Am F Hear me sing Am C Em ... Dm Watch me dance Dm Em F Play that lute of thine Am Em And share with me this dance Am G Am As she danced my eyes began to shine Am G Am There she was the maiden so divine Am7/E G Am How could I approach her with my outlook so poor F Em Am Her beauty being much more than I could endure Am G Am So I asked if I could sing a chanson Am G Am With a language of ancient and of lore Am7/E G Am Gathered the men around us me and the girl in rags F Em Am Soon were the melodies heard by everyone Am F Hear us sing Am C Em ... Dm Watch us dance Dm Em F Sing with us this tale Am Em With a clap of hands Am G Am The stories long-forgotten we still know Am G Am Performing our skills wherever we go Am7 G Am I end my story as I receive a kiss F Em Am From my girl the dearest Beatrice Am F Hear us sing Am C Em ... Dm Watch us dance Dm Em F Sing with us the tales Am Em Which the music will keep alive
