34. Ring

Author’s note:
As well as the usual disclaimer, I must note that the form of this is based on based on “Chains,” written by Goffin/King, as sung by the Beatles. Sung by Frodo in Rivendell.

Ring, my neck is burdened by this gold Ring.
And it ain’t no cause for jubilee.
Whoa, oh, this Ring of gold got a hold on me, yeah.

Ring, well I can’t get away from this Ring.
Can’t stay at home; Sauron would see.
Whoa oh, this Ring of gold is haunting me, yeah.

I wanna tell you, Samwise Gamgee,
I need your help.
I have to travel
But, Samwise, I am weighed down by this

Ring, my neck is burdened by this gold Ring.
And it ain’t no cause for jubilee.
Whoa, oh, this Ring of gold got a hold on me, yeah.

Please believe me when I tell you
I trust your heart.
I know you’ll follow
And help me with the onus of this

Ring, my neck is burdened by this gold Ring.
And it ain’t no cause for jubilee.
Whoa, oh, this Ring of gold got a hold on me, yeah.

Ring, ring of gold...
