8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
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.
I found my love in Avalon,
Beside the bay.
I left my love in Avalon,
And sail'd away.
I dream of her and Avalon,
From dusk till dawn.
And so I think I'll travel on,
To Avalon.
