BTW, here's Jim "Lips of an Angel" charted with the Nashville Numbers


And you will also see parentheses used to indicate a single bar which has more than one chord rather than being underlined. Any number by itself is a single bar and if a bar is 2/4 or anything other than what the original time signature is, it will be notated above the bar with "II" for example for a 2/4 bar. There really aren't any standard rules on this type of chart except for the numbers which make it simple to change the key of a song on the fly.
