Verse 1:

       G
In the middle of the earth,
       C
In the land of the Shire;
        D
Lives a brave little Hobbit,
        G
Whom we all admire.

         G
With his long wooden pipe,
Eb
 Fuzzywoolly toes,
   D
He lives in a Hobbit-hole,
    G (n.C)
And everybody knows him;

Chorus 1:

C
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!)
Bb
 Bilbo Baggins;
     Eb   F          G
He's only three feet tall.

C
 Bilbo! (Bilbo!)
Bb

    D
The bravest little Hobbit,
        G
Of them all.

Verse 2:

    G
Now Hobbits are,
              C
A Peace-lovin folks you know,
     D
They don't like to hurry,
         G
And they take things slow.

     G
They don't like to travel,
  Eb
A-way from home,
          D
They just want to eat,
       G
And be left alone.

But one day Bilbo,
    C#
Was asked to go;
     Eb
On a big adventure,
       Ab
To the caves below,
To help some dwarves,
    E
Get back their gold,
         Eb
That was stolen by a dragon,
       Ab
In the days of old.

        Ab
Well he fought with the goblins,
   A
He battled a troll,
   Bb
He riddled with Gollum,
        B
A magic ring he stole.

       C
He was chased by wolves,
C#
 Lost in the forest,
   D
Es-caped in a barrel,
         Eb
From the Elf-king's halls.
