  Look closely at that page again, towards the top. If you right click (on Windows) or option-click on Mac while your mouse is hovering above the link that is labelled "Download/view this sound (in MIDI format)", you'll invoke a menu that will allow you to play the MIDI file that plays the They Can't Take That Away From Me changes". If you download the sequence, that will give you the changes in a form that you can play along with.

If you click on the "Printable GIF image" link, you'll instantly see a musical score which shows the chord symbols for the changes plus example voicings for each chord in the progression. This will let you study the changes.

That line that reads "Chord changes for George Gershwin's They Can't Take That Away From Me" is just documenting that the content of this page is designed to provide you with the chord change information for the listed tune as detailed above. It also trying to tell you that what is playing in background as you view the page, is not the complete Gershwin composition but only the chord changes for it.

The server software I use, notices any objects that are enclosed by double-quotes and checks to see if we have any pages with that name on the entire site. If we do, it creates a link to that page. In this case, the link that is created just brings you back to the page that contains it. This is admittedly not useful and probably confusing. .
