My Best Video: "How Great Thou Art - Peter Hollens feat. The All-American Boys Chorus"
"Oh you can search far and wide, You can drink the whole town dry, But you'll never find a beer so brown,
But you'll never find a beer so brown,
As the one we drink in our hometown,
(But you'll never find a beer so brown)
As the one we drink in our hometown.
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!"

"Hey! Ho! To the bottle I go To heal my heart and drown my woe. Rain may fall and wind may blow, And there'll still be many miles be still to go
Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain, And the stream that falls from the hill to plain. Better than rain or rippling brook, B: Is a mug of beer inside this Took."

B: "Blunt the knives, bend the forks Smash the bottles and burn the corks Chip the glasses and crack the plates That's what Bilbo Baggins hates! H: Cut the cloth,
P: Tread the fat, H: Leave the bones on the bedroom mat P: Pour the milk on the pantry floor B: Splash the wine on every door!
H: Dump the crocks in the boiling bowl P: Pound them up with a thumping pole H: Then when you're finished, if they are whole B: Send them down the hall to roll.
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates!"

H: "There's an inn, there's an inn, there's a merry old inn Beneath the old grey hill, And there they brew a beer so brown The Man in the Moon himself came down One night to drink his fill. P: Oh, the ostler has a tipsy cat That plays the five-stringed fiddle; And up and down he saws his bow Now squeaking high,
H: Now purring low, B: Now sawing in the middle. P: So the cat on his fiddle played hey-diddle-diddle, A jig that would wake the dead: He squeaked and he sawed and he quickened the tune, While the landlord shook the Man in the Moon: B: "It's after three!" he said.
H: Now quicker the fiddle went deedle-dum-diddle; The dog began to roar, The cows and the horses stood on their heads; The guests all bounded from their beds And danced upon the floor.
B: The round Moon rolled behind the hill, As the Sun raised up her head. She hardly believed her fiery eyes; Though it was day, to her surprise They all went back to bed!"

P: Hey Hollens family. Thank you so much for watching our Hobbit drinking medley. It was such a blast working with Hank Green on this. I am such a fanboy of that guy. He is absolutely incredible and does amazing work, both educationally and entertainment wise. He's just a good guy with a good heart, so please check out his work, I'll have his links down below.

This song is actually part of a CD I released a few months ago and if you haven't seen it or if you like dorky Lord of the Rings and Hobbit songs, you should check it out. I also have signed some CDs and they look like this, this thing that's moving right here. I've signed it a bunch of places, you should check that out. If you want to grab one the link is right here or I will have it down below in the comments.

Enormous thanks to The Badlander in Missoula, Montana, which is where Hank is from, for letting us shoot the video there. You guys are amazing. And... Yeah. Hope you guys enjoyed this. Oh! This wouldn't have been able to be made possible obviously without my amazing supporters on Patreon for letting us fly out to Missoula and film this with my film team. And, yeah. Love you guys. Thank you so much for watching. Next video is going to be an awesome folk song so make sure you check back in two weeks. And, yeah, I will see you guys soon.

Get a signed CD! It's so awesome and there's only some, only few left! Click that or click down below. Bye.
