A couple of verses from the version sung by "The Corries" that follows the verse where the Seven Foresters have "fired" [You don't "fire" arrows, you "loose" them] at Johnny:

"He's rested his back against an Oak
His foot upon a stane.
And he has fired on the Seven Foresters
and he killed them a' but yane,
He's killed them a' but yane"

"He's broken four o' that man's ribs
His airm and his collar bane
And he has set him upon his horse
Tae cairry the tidings hame
Tae cairry the tidings hame"
