words by edgar allan poe
music by michael billingsley


Gaily bedight
A gallant knight
In sunshine and in shadow
Had journeyed long
Singing a song
In search of El Dorado

But he grew old
This night so bold
And o’er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found,
no spot on the ground
That looked like El Dorado

And as his strength
Failed him at length
He met a pilgrim shadow
Shadow said he
Where it can it be?
This land of El Dorado

Over the mountains
Of the moon
Down the valley of the shadow
Ride boldly ride,
The shade replied
If you seek for El Dorado
