A Drinking Song


Ho! Ho! Ho! to the bottle I go

To heal my heart and drown my woe.

Rain may fall and wind may blow,

And many miles be still to go,

But under a tall tree I will lie,

And let the clouds go sailing by.


~As sung by Sam Gamgee and Pippin Took (The Fellowship of the Ring - Book 1, Ch. 4 "A Short Cut to Mushrooms")
