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?
