Verse:
Ev - 'ry morn - ing mem - 'ries stray,
A - cross the sea where fly - ing fish - es play.
And as the night is fall - ing,  I find that I'm re -call -ing,
That bliss - ful all en - thrall - ing day.
 
Chorus:
I found my love in Av - a - lon,
Be - side the bay.
I left my love in Av - a - lon,
And sail'd a - way.
I dream of her and Av - a - lon,
From dusk till dawn.
And so I think I'll trav - el on,
To Av - a - lon.
