 Gaily bedight,
 A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
 Had journeyed 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.

 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!"
