I think it sounds good to have the bass included in the chords. 
Of course it is possible to just play C straight through.

C               [C/G]        C
 Bobby's driving through the city tonight
       [C/G]C              [C/G]F
Through the lights in a hot new rent-a-car
C                   [C/G]   C
 He joins the lovers in his heavy machine
    [C/G]C             [C/G]F           C/E
It's a scene down on Sunset Boulevard

 Johnny's taking care of things for awhile
   [C/G]C                [C/G]F
And his style is so right for troubadours
C                    [C/G]     C
 They got him sitting with his back to the door
   [C/G]C              [C/G]F           C/E
Now he won't be my fast gun anymore
