He ran away invisibly and found the way outside,
And he kept the ring
Hanging on a string
’Til he talked to his wizard guide.
From him he learned the story of a power old and fell,
Whose evil starts
To twist the very hearts
Of the ones beneath its spell.
In ancient times there lived a man, not far from the river’s shore.
He sailed the bend
With a trusted friend
No man could ever love more.
But his friend retrieved a ring one day from deep in the river bed,
And his lust to hold
That magic band of gold
Made him leave his best friend dead.
His treasure won, he hid himself in caves beneath the ground,
Where he lived for years
As his guilt and fears
Made his lonely mind unsound.
’Til a hobbit came to his cave one day and stole his ring so fine,
And clear to the halls
Of the Dark Lord’s thralls
You could hear that bastard whine!
