"Hobbit on the Road"
by Doug McNeel
Bilbo Baggins is my name.
I settled in the Shire down at old Bag End,
Short and true with hair between my toes.
Home Sweet Home is my dear hobbit hole.
We hafling hobbits are a peaceful race,
Fun loving folk with a smile on our face.
We love smoke rings, songs and long tall tales
Fireworks, friends and a good jug of ale.
Hey fiddle diddle diddle, hey fiddle
There's flowers in the meadow and a hobbit’s on the road.
Run little hobbit while the sun still shines.
Run little hobbit while you still have time.
Pray for a heart of love and a good strong mind.
It all began when the wizard came by
With a band of dwarves with gold in their eyes.
Adventures they did promise me;
Bilbo seek your destiny.
Off we went on a hair-raising tale
Into the mountain down the goblins’ trail.
Riddles I told and a ring I found.
Gollum, where is your precious bound?
I’ve had my fill of that cursed ring.
I can feel its power and its deadly sting.
It’s yours now Frodo. Resist its force.
Carry this ring back to its source.
Go little hobbit, be true to your quest.
Face Mt. Doom and the ultimate test.
Walk by faith and not by sight.
Live for the Good and pray for the Light.
