Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo!

Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo! is a song sung by Tom Bombadil, and later, by Frodo Baggins.[1] Tom instructed Frodo and the other hobbits to sing it if they were in trouble and needed him to rescue them.[2]


[edit] The poem

Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo!
By water, wood and hill, by the reed and willow,
By fire, sun and moon, harken now and hear us!
Come, Tom Bombadil, for our need is near us!
