...THE BALLAD OF BILBO BAGGINS... by Leonard Nimoy
---------------------------------.................

*from 'The Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy' (1968)*


Intro:

C  C#, C  B, C  C#, C

Verse 1:

       C                           F
In the middle of the earth, in the land of The Shire;
        G7                           C
Lives a brave little Hobbit, whom we all admire.
         C                 G#
With his long wooden pipe, fuzzy, woolly toes,
   G7 (n.C)                   C (n.C)
He lives in a Hobbit-hole and everybody knows him;

Chorus 1:

F                D#                  G#   A#         C
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; he's only three feet tall.
F                D#                 G7                            C
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; the bravest little Hobbit of them all.

Interlude:

C  C#, C  B, C  C#, C

Verse 2:

     C                        F
Now, Hobbits are peace-lovin' folks, you know,
     G7                                 C
They don't like to hurry, and they take things slow.
                            G#
They don't like to travel a-way from home;
          G7                  C
They just want to eat, and be left alone.

*KEY CHANGE*
------------

Verse 3:

    C#                 F#
But one day, Bilbo was asked to go,
     G#7                  C#
On a big adventure to the caves below.
                         A
To help some Dwarves get back their gold,
         G#7                       C#
That was stolen by a dragon in the days of old.

Chorus 2:

F#               E                   A    B          C#
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; he's only three feet tall.
F#               E                  G#7                           C#
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; the bravest little Hobbit of them all.

Break:

         C#                          D
Well, he fought with the Goblins, he battled a troll,
   D#                           E
He riddled with Gollum; a magic ring he stole.
       F                 F#
He was chased by wolves, lost in the forest,
   G                           G#
Es-caped in a barrel, from the Elf-King's Halls.

Chorus 3:

F#               E                  G#7                           C#
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; the bravest little Hobbit of them all.

Solo:

C#  F#  G#7  C#, C#  A  G#7  C#

Verse 4:

         C#                       F#
Now he's back in his hole, in the land of The Shire;
     G#7                          C#
That brave little Hobbit, whom we all admire.
                                A
Just a-sittin' on a treasure of silver and gold;
  G#7 (n.C)                   C# (n.C)
A-puffin' on his pipe, in his Hobbit Hole.

Chorus 4:

F#               E                   A    B          C#
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; he's only three feet tall.
F#               E                  G#7                           C#
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!) Bilbo Baggins; the bravest little Hobbit of them all.

(Repeat to Fade)
