The chords in parenthesis over the last line of the song are an optional turn-around to begin the song again -- which would probably be obvious the first time you played them, but it can be embarrassing to play in front of someone else and suddenly find yourself thinking "Where the heck am I gonna go with this now?" Been there. Done that. Don't recommend it.
