(The bracketed notes only occur occasionally. This can sound 
a bit thin unaccompanied, so one alternative is to play the 
(0)'s as 4's.)
     
Link to v2 is just the "saddle up" section
     
Link into v3:

                                    (*)
(twice: second time do 6 bars then go into intro/verse pattern) 
(again, if unaccompanied, the chord at * might sound better as
 3x320, as it includes a note that is otherwise only in the 
 string section)
     
End of last chorus:
                             |--------|--------|
"who leaves his armour..."   |----0---|--0-----| ..."down"
                             |----0---|--0-----|
