❧ From the The Lord of the Rings, The Felloswhip of the Ring: The Complete Recordings, Bag End, by Howard Shore
•The Road Goes Ever On
sung by Ian McKellen.
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
FOTR, Book 1, Chapter 1, A Long Expected Party
In the book, this is sung by Bilbo as he leaves Bag End and the Shire. A number of versions of this song exist in "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings".
