It's just telling you the chords to the song. It's pretty tough to tab out strumming patterns in tab form so most of the time you'll just get the chords over the lyrics to depict when to switch chords. You just have to learn the chord shape, strum along with the tune, and switch when you hear the chords in the song switch.

To read a chord (i.e. F#5) is the same as a tab, just in horizontal form.

Por ejemplo:

F#5 is (xx4x22)
which can also be read as:
e|--2
B|--2
G|--x
D|--4
A|--x
E|--x
