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

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:

All I have at the "Hangman, Hangman.. ..brother coming many a mile" is mandolin. Here is the silver/gold part.
