As you leave these gates behind, carry forth the love and laughter
Be the vessels of the light we share, the keepers of the fire
Let our stories entertwine, be our happy ever after
Let your queen and country live beyond the shire.
I got this song via a submission, but then I had to be an ass and go find a version with a bit less ambient noise and a closer mic. Also there’s some children singing along at the end, it’s adorable. The submitted recording is this one (worth checking out, if only for the costumes, and there’s nothing wrong with the performance, just a lot of wind).
A sweet and moving song about Renaissance faires, “Beyond The Shire,” by Rowan and the Tudor Rose, to the tune of Stan Rogers’ “Northwest Passage.”
