In my yellow boots



Bombadil springs around on the fringe of country music, recording such hits as 'Goldberry' (sung to the tune of 'Mayberry';), 'With my Yellow Boots On', and 'Old Man Willow', which frankly edged into the Broadway/folk music territory.
He's notoriously camera-shy and attempting to chase him on the rare occasions he's seen has caused more than one incident with carnivorous trees.
All recordings are hand-delivered by a Barrow Wight and, quite frankly, no one wants to follow it back into the woods to find Tom.


Somewhere in the middle of trying to properly render Tom Bombadil, I realized he looked like a bard.
Then I realized he was.
So I am either clever in a roundabout way or lucky. Leaning towards the latter.

I was always fond of Tom. I would have liked to have seen him in the movies.
