There are bits of lead throughout the song but i'll leave that to you
since I don't play them.  Just make sure there's plenty of distortion
on all guitars.  Neil would want it that way.

You stay in your village, and I will stay in mine. 
If your sheep come to eat our grass, we will kill you. 
We may kill you anyway to get your grass for our sheep if we run short.
Anyone who tries to make us change our ways is a witch, and we will kill him.
Stay out of our village.
