re: LMB Anthem lyrics

There were requests at the kin meeting that we put up a post with the lyrics to our Anthem, so I have done so. EDIT: Thanks, Danniwyn, for the link! I waded through that thread, and as far as I can tell, below are the correct final lyrics.

Though dwarves love crafting mighty armor
Of mithril-silver and steel,
No forge in Arda could ever equal
The love a kinmate feels.

Hobbits love food and bake their goodies,
Muffins, pies, and cakes.
But all the food in Michel Delving
Will never a friendship make.
(Oh my!)

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Men will stand around the Prancing Pony
Seeking drama all day.
We'll break the calm and bring a pibgorn
When Andune starts to play.

Elves of ages long forgotten,
Lost in memories of yore:
Their insight sparks up book club discussions
Of Tolkien's finest lore.

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

At Ales and Tales Old Winyards will play--
Come and dance to the song!
And BBB will crash the party,
Laughing and singing along.

At Weatherstock we will all work together:
Men, Dwarves, Hobbits, and Elves.
Come, Band, now and raise a glass (or twenty!):
Drink a toast to ourselves.
(More ale!)

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Far apart, but never alone;
Come walk with us, come take our hand!
Far apart, but never alone;
We're the Lonely Mountain Band!

Here's a link to the super-long thread where members worked together, tweaking the lyrics.

re: LMB Anthem lyrics

Thank you so much for this! I searched very quickly before we played the anthem and couldn't find them!

Talk about good times... This was such a blast to put together. =)

Honor and fun,

Far apart, never alone! =)
