A tall-ish willowy woman ducks under the front door and pauses to look around. She has long mahogany coloured hair and large blue eyes. She smiles, even though there is no one else in the room, except for a red haired dwarf who is currently enjoying a large mug of something potent.

The dwarf introduces himself and indicates a sign over the bar:

"All newcommers must sing."

"Oh," the woman says, her dulcet voice causing the dwarf to raise a curious eyebrow, "Well, I suppose I could do something..."

The dwarf, Gimli, considers this a little strange, since no one else was there yet, but he knows what short tempers elves (she has an elvish look to her, he decides) have and that they follow peculiar customs. Oh well, if she wants to sing to herself, let her he thinks.

The woman composes herself and begins softly:

"Gil Galad was an Elven-King.
Of him the harpers sadly sing,..."

She sings for a minute or so and when she finishes, Gimli raises his mug (which he had refilled a couple of times while listening) in token of acceptance. He recalled hearing of Gil Galad sometime.

"Well did I do that right?" the woman asks him.

Bravo Bravo!! *gimli jumps to his feet and rushes over for a proper greeting*


You my dear are my first partron, and as is customary, your first drink shall be on the house! That was a lovely song you sang, I can't help but think it is some how familier to me.....

The door opens and in pops a fat little hobbit wearing sideburns and a white sequined jumpsuit. He is carrying a guitar and as he swaggers to the bar you can tell that his hips are quite swivelly.

The innkeeper points to the sign. The stranger nods and says, "That's all right, Baby!" and steps up to the mic.

"Thank you, thank you very much. I'd like to do a little ballad from my last gig at 'The Tower' (slight pause) in Cirith Ungol". He plays a few chords, tweaks a couple pegs on the guitar's neck, and when satisfied says, "It goes like this." and plays an intro before starting the first verses, and then:

"In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.
Or there maybe 'tis cloudless night
and swaying beeches bear
the Elven-stars as jewels white
amid their branching hair."

He plays a sixteen bar cadenza and continues:

"Though here at journey's end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell."

As he finishes he bows with the words, "Thank you, thank you, thank you very much." and proceeds to draw down the tankard of ale that has just been offered by the Dwarf, who introduces himself and the other patron of the establishment.

"Sam, Sam Gamgee's the name; playing gigs the game. Used to be accompanied by an old hound dog named, Baby, but Since mah Baby's left me, I've had to play alone." (Rimshot followed by groans and grimaces.) :grin:

Open goes the door again and in comes a jolly-looking creature, with a brown beard and sparkling blue eyes. His clothes are blue, his boots are yellow and he wears a feather on his head. (now who might this be? :P: ) He greets the innkeeper, sees the sign and nods. Then he bursts into a song of nonsense:

"Hey dol! merry dol!ring a dong dillo!
Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!"

Still singing, he grabs the hands of Allyssa, drags her along into a dance.

"Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! My darling!
Light goes the weather-wind and the feathered starling.
Down along under Hill, shining in the sunlight,
Waiting on the doorstep for the cold starlight,
There my pretty lady is, River-Woman's daughter,
Slender as the willow-wand, clearer than the water.
Old Tom Bombadil water-lilies bringing
Comes hopping home again. Can you hear him singing?
Hey! Come merry dol! derry dol! and merry-o,
Goldberry, Goldberry, merry yellow berry-o!
Poor old Willow-man, you tuck your roots away!
Tom's in a hurry now. Evening will follow day.
Tom's going home again water lilies bringing.
Hey! Come derry dol! Can you hear me singing?"

As the song ends, he puts Allyssa back on her chair again and walks to the bar. "So there's your song then eh!" he says to the innkeeper, who nods. "As you might have heard, I must be off again soon, Goldberry is waiting, but on me way home, I spotted this inn here, which I had never seen before in these 3000 years I've lived here. So I thought I might just as well drop in and have a mug of ale to keep me on the way eh!"
The innkeeper (by all looks a dwarf) hands him a cold mug of ale, which he finishes in one go. With a wave of his hand and the following words, he leaves again: "Oh well, must be off. Got some hobbits to free again, I feel. Silly little things have walked into the hands of the willow-man again. Tsss! Cheers all!"nn[Edited on 5/7/2002 by TomBombadillo]

*satisfied that all of his customers were happily sloshed, gimli made his way to the mic to perform a little ditty by that wonderful band The Who-bbits*

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

No one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

*Gimli was very impressed with Sam's guitar riffs in the middle of the song! It was a pleasant surprise!*

*He decided it was wise of him to purchase another drink for Allyssa, after he nearly took off her head swinging the microphone around....*

ah hell.. a round for everyone on the house!!!!!

"Hey everyone, I'm back!" shouts Tom, who comes through the doorway and makes his way to the bar. "I'd like to join in that round of yours, innkeeper!"

After his first sips from the cool ale, he sits himself on a chair and begins to sing again:

"Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!
Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow!
Tom Bom, jolly Tom, Tom Bombadillo!

Next round is on me, folks! This is what this region has been missing for ages: a good inn. Cheers all!"
