 Album: The Hazards Of Love
  Song: The Abduction of Margaret

Tabbed by: chi

*Note* With all the power chords I ignored the quality,
i.e. major/minor.  I'm pretty sure the

Gs are all minor, but it wasn't really important since
the 3rd is left out anyway.

F                                  G                  D
And all the while whispering arbors provide cover
F                           G              D

(Back To Power Chords)
F                                    G           D
All a'gallop with Margaret slung rude  cross withers
F                                  G              D
Having clamped her innocent fingers in fetters
Bb                                 C
Our villain must calculate crossing the wild river
