Song - IF

By Allegretta Aleford 

If I ever had to leave the Shire
If I had to go away
The mem'ries I would take
Would see me through the day
If the green and gentle Shire I love
Was lost to me, I know
My life would lose its smile
The colour all would go
And when the night
Would settle all around
I'd dream of here
And fear to wake

If the Shire was far behind me
And my friends were far away
Nowhere else would be so fair
Though in silken sheets I lay
Given palaces and riches
They could not get me to stay
I'd strive to get back home
I'd hobble all the way
And when I saw this
Green and pleasant land
I'd know that I
Had come back to my home.
