Ev'ry morning mem'ries stray,

Across the sea where flying fishes play,

And as the night is falling

I find that I'm recalling

That blissful all enthralling day

Just before I sailed away,

She said the word I longed to hear her say,

I tenderly caressed her

Close to my heart I pressed her

Upon that golden yesterday.

 

I found my love in Avalon beside the bay,

I left my love in Avalon and sailed away.

I dream of her and Avalon, from dusk till dawn

And so I think I'll travel on

To Avalon.
