Gaily bedight, a gallant knight
In sunshine and in shadow
Did journey long, singing a song
In search of Eldorado
But he grew old this knight so bold
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found no spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado
Over the mountains of the moon
Down the valley of the shadow
Ride boldly ride the shade replied
If you seek for Eldorado
And as his strength failed him at length
He met a pilgrim shadow
Shadow said he where can it be
This land of Eldorado
Over the mountains of the moon
Down the valley of the shadow
Ride boldly ride the shade replied
If you seek for Eldorado
