Circles of Gold

- Shelob
Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

A birthday party in the Shire
Four friends, secretly conspire
Crossing Old Maggot's farm
Mushrooms and bacon, keep them warm
Haunted tomb of ancient kings
Tom Bombadil, bright sunshine brings
Friendly inn of the Prancing Pony
Apple strikes the nose of ol' Bill Ferny
Evil, black riders at Weathertop
Fog and mist, a knife in the dark

Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

Rest and healing in the house of Elrond
Fellowship of Nine, the Quest goes on
Struggle through the snow
Battle with a cave troll
Durin's Bane is Gandalf's fate
No longer nine, now they are eight
In the land of golden Mallorn leaves
Gifts from a queen, their journey to ease
Attacked by Saruman's Uruk-hai
Struck by many arrows, Boromir must die

Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

They are forced to scatter
The Fellowship is shattered
Saruman, dark wizard of fear
Looks into his black palantir
Fighting orcs, ten thousand strong
Leave the fortress of Isengard
Dwarf, man and elf, hunters three
Two small hobbits meet an old tree
Wizard on a beautiful white horse
Sets an old king back on course

Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

Warriors of Rohan and Gandalf meet
The king's men triumph at Helm's Deep
Treebeard calls to his shepherds of trees
Black shadow of Fangorn, orc bones freeze
Slimy Gollum, pretends to be a friend
Sam cooks stewed rabbit in a pan
Caught in Ithilien by Lord Faramir
Released to continue their task of fear
Into the lair of a great black spider
Sam thrusts Sting deep inside her

Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

Greed for gold and evil power
Eye of red, Dark Lord's tower
A huge winged beast
Flys from the East
Captain of the West
In white sailing ships
Red flame and ashes
Loud thunder crashes
Brave Eowyn in disguise
Sword flashes, Ringwaith dies

Circle of gold
Dark tales untold

Wicked Gollum and the Ring
Vanish in smoke and flame
Sam and Frodo stumble away
Mighty eagles, save the day
Silver and black of palace guard
Welcome a Ranger, as their Lord
Aragorn receives a golden crown
Arwen knows her love is found
The Shire is restored to prosperity
Frodo and the elves go into eternity
