[Verse 1]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
Far over the misty mountain cold
             G              Am
To dungeons deep and caverns old
        Em                  G
We must away ere break of day
   Bm        C      G       Am
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

[Verse 2]
      Am       Dm        C         Am
The dwarves of yore made mi--ghty spells,
               G                 Am
While Hammers fell like ringing bells
           Em                     G
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
     Bm     C        G       Am
In hallow halls beneath the fells.

[Verse 3]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
For ancient king and el-vish lord
             G              Am
There many a gleaming golden hoard
        Em                  G
They shaped the wrought, and light they caught
   Bm        C      G       Am
To hide in gems on hilt of sword

[Verse 4]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
On silver necklaces th-ey strung
             G              Am
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
        Em                  G
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
   Bm        C      G       Am
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

[Verse 5]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
Far over the misty mountains cold
             G              Am
To dungeons deep and caverns old
        Em                  G
We must away, ere break of day,
   Bm        C      G       Am
To claim our long-Forgotten gold.

[Verse 6]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
Goblets they carved there for themselves
             G              Am
And harps of gold where no man delves
        Em                  G
There lay a long, and many a song
   Bm        C      G       Am
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

[Verse 7]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
They pines were roaring on the height,
             G              Am
The winds were moaning in the night.
        Em                  G
The fire was red, in flaming spread
   Bm        C      G       Am
The trees like torches blazed with light.

[Verse 8]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
The bells were ringing in the dale
             G              Am
And men looked up with faces pale
        Em                  G
The dragon's ire more fierce then fire
   Bm        C      G       Am
Laid low there towers and houses frail.

[Verse 9]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
The mountains smoked beneath the moon
             G              Am
The dwarves, the heard the tramp of doom.
        Em                  G
They fled there hall to dying fall
   Bm        C      G       Am
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

[Verse 10]
     Am      Dm         C    Am
Far over the misty mountains grim
             G              Am
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
        Em                  G
We must away, Ere break of day,
   Bm        C      G       Am
To win our harps and gold from him!
