“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”
— The Road Goes Ever On (song) by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship Of The Ring.
A number of walking songs by J. R. R. Tolkien fall under this title. The original appeared in The Hobbit, sung by Bilbo Baggins, while others were featured in The Lord Of The Rings — a small part of the magnificent history and culture of Tolkien’s Legendarium.
