    Our heroine here falls prey to her abductor!

D:|0---0-5~~--|-0---0-7~~--| (play twice!)
A:|0---0-5~~--|-0---0-7~~--|
D:|0---0-5~~--|-0---0-7~~--|


Then repeat the entire song, but miss out the section 1 variation
and the metal bit, and use these lyrics:

All a' gallop with Margaret slung rude 'cross withers
Having clamped her innocent fingers in fetters
This villain must calculate crossing the wild river!
