Lyrics: On down by Avalon Avalon of the heart On down by Avalon Gonna make a brand new start Oh the Holy Grail Baby behind the sun Oh the Holy Grail Down by Avalon Well I came upon The enchanted vale Down by the viaducts of my dreams Down by Camelot, hangs the tale In the ancient vale Oh the Avalon sunset Avalon of the heart Me and my lady Goin’ down by Avalon Well I came upon The enchanted vale Down by the viaducts of my dreams Near Camelot, hangs the tale Of the enchanted vale In the upper room There the cup does stand In the upper room Down by Avalon Goin’ down by Avalon Oh my Avalon of the heart Goin’ down by Avalon Gonna make a brand new start Oh down by Avalon Oh baby behind the sun Goin’ down by Avalon Well the journey’s just begun Oh down by Avalon Sweet Avalon of the heart Goin’ down by Avalon

    Van Morrison is undoubtedly one of the greatest musicians of our age!
    – ‘Avalon?’ For those interested in ‘The Arimathean Trail’ .. ‘Avalon’ means ‘The isle of apples’. Closely associated with ‘Glastonbury’ and Somerset (‘Summer Isle’) yet the name is also considered to be either of Old ´╗┐ Welsh. Irish Cornish and Breton (jolly good cider) origins.

  • flexibartr:

    The castle in the video (or quite a good copy of it) is located near the town of F├╝ssen in Bavaria and has been build by the “insane” King Luis II who had all the time music in his ears and in his mind, the´╗┐ music of Richard Wagner. Wagner’s operas partly deal with stories from the British islands: Cornwall and Ireland, Parsival, Lohengrin.
