Durin's Bane

chorus: (compliments of J.R.R. Tolkein)
One ring to rule them all
One ring to find them
One ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them

verse 1
Just a lonely halfling
an accidental fate
Before he knew just what he had
the hour was much too late

verse 2
Sauron's dark eye search in vain
the Ringwraiths' bell shall toll
Ringbearer half their size,
twice their weight in soul

verse 3
time in rivendell will come to pass
the time for singing gone
the road is long and time is short
ring bearer must move on

verse 4
A lonely band of nine set out
to do the deeds of one
destroy the one to rule them all
without it they'd have won

chorus

verse 5
In the mines of Gimli's kind,
the mountain's belly full
curse the name of Durin's Bane
Gandalf gave his life to kill

verse 6
the band of nine the forest find
Legolas's home
the grey had gone, the mirrormere
a glimps of things to come

verse 7
Reunited and off to fight,
with woe, the wars of men
The road is long and time is short
Ringbearer off again.

verse 8
In mordor where the shadows lie
the cracks of doom run deep
the bearer's burden cast inside
now no one's prize to keep

chorus
refrain
In the darkness bind them
In the darkness bind them
In the darkness bind them
In the darkness bind them
