Capo on 6th fret

Standard Tuning,  

G/C from 1st string to 6th: 0-1-0-0-2-3 

On a couple of the Am's in this song, Damien strikes the fourth string on the second fret, 
then plays the same string open, and then hits it again with his finger on the second fret. 
Such is the case in the Intro, which is played like:

C G/C Am Sadly, she replied, I do not have one C G/C Am Then it's you I'll marry with your parents' permission humming: Am - C - G/C - Am C G/C Am No fine sir, they will not let me marry C For I am a young girl G/C Am And you are a man without money C G/C Then I'll come by your window Am Tonight when they both will be sleeping humming: Am - C - G/C - Am C G/C Am Outside your window in a carriage I will be waiting C G/C They'll awake to find you gone Am Open their eyes and think they're dreaming C G/C And never did they think Am That their Abilene would leave them humming: Am - C - C/G - Am C G/C Am Now fine sir, where is it you shall take me?
