The most important thing in the Am and D section is the keyboard,
so the picking is approximate. On the Morning Becomes Eclectic video
he is basically just strumming here but you can see him add the C note
on the A string with his pinky finger. I do think this is the closest
you can come to a good picking pattern for this part though.

As I was a-ramble down by the water
I spied in sable the landlord's daughter 

I produced my pistol, then my saber
Said, "Make no whistle or thou will be murdered!"

She cursed, she shivered, she cried for mercy
"My gold and silver if thou will release me!"

The guitars are playing this.
