The Music: Lyrics & Lead Sheets

song title:Durin's Bane
date: 1995-04-01
song notes:Concept courtesy of JRRT, jams courtesy of Oversoul

One ring to rule them all
One ring to find them
One ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them

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

Sauron's dark eye search in vain
the Ringwraiths' bell shall toll
Ring bearer half their size,
tice their weight in soul

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

A lonely band of nine set out
to do the deeds of one

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

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

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
