The Road Goes Ever On (RGEO)

The book of songs published by Donald Swan based on the poetry in The Lord of the Rings. This book includes an appendix of linguistic notes written by Tolkien that discuss the poems Námarië and A Elbereth Gilthoniel.

There are two editions of this book with different page numbers. The references here are based on the 2nd edition from 1969, which is easier to find. Added 8 to the page numbers to find the locations in the 1st edition from 1962, which is how this reference is typically cited in other academic texts.

References are by page number; the first 2 digits of the decimal value are the line number, and the last 2 digits are the word position in the line.
