Music by Janet Roddick, David Donaldson, Stephen Roche & David Long (or Plan 9 & David Long); Lyrics by Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. Featuring Billy Boyd & Dominic Monaghan.

Collaboratively penned by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and the members of Plan 9, “The Green Dragon” is Merry and Pippin’s ode to their favorite Bywater pub. And though it’s a moment of pure celebratory joyousness, the song contains a dark moment. Pippin pauses mid-song, distracted, as if lost in his memories of the palantír.

This song features fiddle accompaniment by Dermot Crehan, who performed all the prominent fiddle work in The Lord of the Rings.

TEXTS
THE GREEN DRAGON
Text by Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens
FIRST HEARD: DISC ONE | TRACK SEVEN
You can search far and wide.
You can drink the whole town dry.
But you’ll never find a beer so brown
As the one we drink in our home town.
But you’ll never find a beer so brown
As the one we drink in our home town.
You can keep your fancy ales.
You can drink them by the flagon.
But the only brew for the brave and true
Comes from the Green Dragon.
