    *A tune well known*

    Farewell to Buckleberry Landing Stage
    River Brandywine, I fare thee well
    I am bound for far off Dol Guldur
    A place I know right well

    Chorus:
    So fare thee well, my own true love
    When I return united we will be
    It's not the leaving of Hobbiton that's grieving me
    But my darling when I think of thee

    I'm bound off for far off Dol Guldur
    By the way of stormy Mirkwood
    And I will write you a letter,my love
    When I am homeward bound
    Chorus:

    I have signed on as Minstrel in a fellowship
    to see if monsters we can tame
    And Hirion is the Captain of it
    He says he will lead us to fame
    Chorus:

    I have fellowed with Hirion once before
    And I think I know him well
    If you do your job, you can get along
    If not, then you're sure in Hell
    Chorus:

    Farewell to The Smials at Tuckborough,
    Give my regards to the Thain
    For I think it will be a long, long time
    Before I see you again
    Chorus:

    Oh the sun is on the harbour, love
    And I wish I could remain
    For I know it will be a long, long time
    Till I see you again
    Chorus:


    **this came about after I had a problem with my ABC files....they self deleted and I had to copy from my backup set. Unfortunately my backup also has all the unwanted and unsuitable tunes there too, I just made this a little more appropriate *grin* **

    Not sure I could regocnize the tune. And that must be a nasty captain there, taking you to hell/giving you hell...? :shock:

    ((The tune is "The Leaving of Liverpool" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1T5UZMCfME ))

    The Captain is a good man who leads raids against the dark enemy. This is a dangerous task and he asks each member to do their job, for the success of the raid and the safety of the group depends on it.

    I look forward to signing up to another raid under his leadership.

    ((Once my internet connection gets some semblance of stability))
