Here are some of the basics for Gallows Pole the way I play it

Ted DaCosta  


    Page plays similar riffs to this basic progression
e------------0--0-0-0---------5--------------------------------------------
B---2-0-2--2-0--1-1-1--1---3--0--------------------------------------------
G---0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0--0---0-----------------------------------------------
D---2-2-2--2----2---2--2---4-----------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hang man, hang man....


e--3-3-3--2-2--2-----------------------------------------------------------
B--0-0-0--3-3--3-----------------------------------------------------------
G--0-0-0--2-2--2-----------------------------------------------------------
D--0-0-0--0-0--0-----------------------------------------------------------
A--2-2-2-------------------------------------------------------------------
E--3-3-3-------------------------------------------------------------------
   riding many a ....	


Now when the mandolin comes in the following standard open chords are played

A         G D        G   A         D      G
Hang man,   hang man     hold it a little while

A         G      D                  G      D
I think I see my brother coming     riding many a mile 



Next part lightly muted A chord


e--------
B--------
G--2-----
D--2-----
A--0-----
E--------

Brother did you get me some silver ....


Next part uses this type of riff

    A
e----------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------
G---2-----2---2-2-2-2-2------------------------
D---2-----2---2-2-2-2-2------------------------
A---0-----0---0-0-0-0-0------------------------
E-3----3---------------------------------------
              muted lightly

Brother I brought you some silver...

Next change follows above riff

A          C           D    A
Yes I've  brought you    to keep you from the gallows pole...


Also I saw some discussion on the line

"save me from the wrath of this man"  this sounds correct to me



--

    Gallows Pole                    X - percussive tone with no pitch
    Led Zeppelin III                ) - bends
                                    / - slide
                                  ~~~ - vibrato
                                    ^ - hammer on / pull off

   To play this, page uses a 6 string acoustic to play the main part. And
   a distorted electric guitar in treble for the solo

   Main Riff:

e|---|----------------0--------0-----------5----|
B|---|---2--0--2------2--1-----1----/3--3------o|
G|---|---0-----0---0-----0--0--0-----0--0-------|   repeat
D|-2-|---2-----2---2-----2--2-------/4--4-------|
A|-0-|-------------------------------0---------o|
E|---|------------------------------------------|


                                        All I have at the "Hangman, Hangman..
                                        ..brother coming many a mile" is
                                        mandolin.

Here is the silver/gold part.

e|-------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------o|
G|-------------------------------------|    repeat
D|-----2-----2--X--X--X--X--X--X--X----|
A|-----0-----0--X--X--X--X--X--X--X---o|
E|--3-----3----------------------------|


and the solo...
