Dreadnoughts, The - Avalon Lyrics




I lie in centuries grove
Where the cool wind blows
Where the cool wind blows
Upon this stone plateau
Where the cool wind blows
Where the cool wind blows

A dust is falling in the air
The murderers are millionaires
I will wait to see you there
Avalon
Avalon

A young man fell below
Where flowers grow
Row on row
A madman lays the foe
Where flowers grow
And the children know
Bullets shatter naked bone
A little girl grows up alone
Carves your name into the stones
Of Avalon
Avalon

You are my peace of mind
Where the river winds
Where the water shines
Orchards hills and vines
Where the water shines
Where the water shines

You don't belong to anyone
When the day is said and done
You'll receive your native son
Avalon
Avalon

  1. mookie7475

    God Bless music talent that is authentic!!

  2. The Four Horsemen

    I lie in Centuries Grove,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Upon the stone plateau,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Where the cool wind blows,


    A dust is falling in the air,
    Th murderers are millionaires,
    I will wait to see you there
    Avalon,
    Avalon.


    A young man fell below
    Where flowers grow
    Row on row
    A madman lays the foe
    Where flowers grow
    And the children know
    Bullets shatter naked bone
    A little girl grows up alone
    Carves your name into the stones
    Of Avalon
    Avalon


    You are my peace of mind
    Where the river winds
    Where the water shines
    Orchards hills and vines
    Where the water shines
    Where the water shines


    You do not belong to anyone
    When the day is said and done
    You'll receive your native son
    Avalon
    Avalon

  3. The Four Horsemen

    Still listening in 2019.

  4. Sunny McElrone

    This song is a strong example why I make single playlists and abuse the repeat button.

  5. Ellye M

    I've always loved this. Very ancient Celtic sounding, but it's modern indie.

  6. Argonian Maid

    Quite fitting after reading Cornwell's Arthurian myths.

  7. mookie7475

    History and modern life co-exist!!

  8. Keith Hickson

    I lie in Centuries Grove,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Upon the stone plateau,
    Where the cool wind blows,
    Where the cool wind blows,

    A dust is falling in the air,
    Th murderers are millionaires,
    I will wait to see you there
    Avalon,
    Avalon.

    A young man fell below
    Where flowers grow
    Row on row
    A madman lays the foe
    Where flowers grow
    And the children know
    Bullets shatter naked bone
    A little girl grows up alone
    Carves your name into the stones
    Of Avalon
    Avalon

    You are my peace of mind
    Where the river winds
    Where the water shines
    Orchards hills and vines
    Where the water shines
    Where the water shines

    You don't belong to anyone
    When the day is said and done
    You'll receive your native son
    Avalon
    Avalon

    Anthony

    Thank you

    Marsden Lyonwahl

    Keith Hickson

    Peter Theilig

    This song is way more depressing than I first thought. Damn.... those lyrics....

  9. Efe Yıldırım

    Who still listening in 2017 ?

    GodKingEmperorTrump

    Efe Yıldırım Na man 2018

    pop ivan

    @GodKingEmperorTrump 2019 now

  10. Lews Therin Talamon

    Besides the lyrics, there's a definite Hobbit/LotR/WoT vibe here.

    Lord Archaeon

    The Archaic Scroll Well the name Avalon comes from Arthurian myth which definitely inspired LotR

  11. Donavan O'brein

    Anyone know of songs with just vocals?

    Lews Therin Talamon

    By these guys?

    Donavan O'brein

    yes lad

    Lews Therin Talamon

    Try Randy Dandy o. It's an old sea shanty that they do really well.

    Loryana Smith

    try Old Maui, another shanty. They have 2 versions of that shanty, one of them is just vocals

    Draco Distortion

    Eliza Lee is a good one they do

  12. I Be Wither

    This song makes me feel a peculiar feeling, a feeling that I wish to sail the sea for eternity. Living love, sex and above the stars. Happy times those days would be.

  13. Carrigada Ashcroft

    the drought nuts as opposed to doughnuts are from the northwest or northeast if you are talking from a fisheye' dreadnoughts got it, seafaring solidarity from western Europe :-)

    Goose 7711

    Carrigada Ashcroft drought nuts?

    its your uncle bourbon

    Carrigada Ashcroft what? dreadnoughts were pre ww2 battleships, i dont think the bands name has anything to do with pasteries

  14. Mátyás Bancea

    LOTR feelings :)

  15. Nathan Lang

    too bad this was their last album before their "indefinite hiatus"

    BlodOchStål

    They are back!

    Ian Freed

    BlodOchStål I emailed them about it. The drummer is going to buy me a drink.

    Bones Bones

    Boy have I news for you. They're back

    Wolf

    Bones Bones lets drink to that

    Sunny McElrone

    They just came out with a new album not too long ago (a month?) and it is an epic collection of shanties. You probably wont see this post since.. its been a few years, but I hope you do.

  16. OverReactor

    Anybody else thinking of one of these old long-hauled diesel-trucks driving along a long, straight and dusty old desert road with the driver thinking of his friends and beloved ones back home? Or am I the only one?

    fidur2

    OverReactor more like Pacific Northeast (Pines, fog, curvy road by the seashore), but I get you.

    please shoot me

    i kind think of a rainy day at a play ground

    Tyler Chuning

    I am a truck driver, and this song pops up on my play list several times a day. I look forward to it.

    Frank

    I think of a dreadnought 1day from the foes coast, when the regret of letting behind your loved ones kicks in

    IrishHandCannon

    Same but a ship

  17. Lucy F.

    (y) nice nice nice.

  18. Talons of the Raven

    Great band!

  19. mookie7475

    History and Punk unofficial allies!!

  20. phil_osopher33

    Daren Redman

    +Gofaw Indeed.

  21. Graham Morgan

    Luís Gustavo

    Hahaha! They don't suspect a thing!

  22. grave digger

    Brilliant band fantastic songs

  23. xdizzy12

    I love the sound. Any songs that sound similar? 

    ValliantGoodman

    +xdizzy12 The Guns of Jericho by Flogging Molly

    Adam Mossman

    The band The Levellers often have a similar sound and feel to this

  24. ktelle

    Oh my god this band is just perfect.

    LordVader1094

    Yes, yes it is.

    domagoj hribar

    yes it is

  25. koke doke

    Link!!!!! i want this sound on my head in all my journies around the f*cking world D:!!!!!!!! 

  26. Rockett800

    The name of the album is Uncle Touchy goes to college.

  27. William Murphy

    A good song makes you think on everything for a good long while

  28. AdvancePlays

    This song gives me so many feels and I really don't know why. Good feels and bad feel alike. Great song.

  29. Tomas Martinez

    Lovely

  30. Erc Misanthrope

    yep saw em in ottawa when they came...... don't remember it.
    come to think of it i barely have any memory of dreanoughts shows....
    cider de-dider

  31. Justin Tucker

    The band isn't no more. They just play when they want to. When it's convenient for the whole band to put their all into it. You're right about them not wanting to burn out. That's why they're not making The Dreadnoughts a part time thing not a full on career. They just did a bunch of shows in Canada not long ago.

  32. Jan Z.

    But this one got deep in my heart! And prisoners song is good as well, but the rest for nothing I agree

  33. Erc Misanthrope

    cool. i think they're grand

  34. Jan Z.

    I'm glad they did not become like flogging molly or the murphys. Cause their publicity just made them shit. Their newest albums are mass media adjusted crap in my opinion.. Very sad

  35. the1lordawesomness

    but they're doing a show in october :D

  36. Collin Hanes

    that would suck haha

  37. Erc Misanthrope

    naw but that would suck if we died before they came

  38. Collin Hanes

    lol you actually believe in that shit? XD

  39. Erc Misanthrope

    lol they have to schedual ottawa AFTER the end of the world haha

  40. Erc Misanthrope

    so i hear. they're just not gonna tour as much as they used to.

  41. Collin Hanes

    Not to worry my friend, the dreadnoughts are coming back on january 3rd 2013 :D

  42. Collin Hanes

    actually they're back ;) Dreadnoughts are coming back to ottawa!

  43. Dominique Barbeau

    This CD is decent.. but I much prefer their 3 previous ones. Polka's not dead kicks some serious ass

    Lews Therin Talamon

    Just a different style. This isn't polka.

  44. Erika Hoepers

    so you will probably go on tours in north america only (or the most of it) :/ it would be awesome if you could come to brasil one day... well, cheers from south america \o/

  45. Boberton7

    The song Defiants, from this album.

  46. Boberton7

    That's a lot of luck.

  47. jwpmichal

    I'm 8888th viewer.

  48. therejects1000

    sounds like the street dogs 'final tranmission'

  49. Erc Misanthrope

    @ShanksmasterGeneral i hear ya bud..... i'm probably going to end up quitting my job so i can see you guys tomorrow :P
    hopefully i have money to buy merch from you guys... i had a t-shirt but got sent to the hospital and they had to cut it off :(
    be there or be square..
    cheers,
    your friendly neighboorhood bearblaster

  50. Durandal

    I played a few shows with this band 2010. They put on a hell of a show live,and this song is good proof they can write a good slow one.

  51. ShanksmasterGeneral

    @bearblaster420 well... we're still going to play shows, but not the 150 shows a year. I sure as hell didn't want to be a burnout band like the ones I've seen on tour. That's Misery. BEAR BONG!

  52. Erc Misanthrope

    @fubar190 5 FUCKING days until they return!! \m/

  53. fubar190

    @bearblaster420 Amen brother i saw their very first show in ottawa, they just blew me away

  54. Erc Misanthrope

    @Jazzy7664 :(
    Uncle Touchy actually went To Colledge, the band is no more.
    they could have been huge like flogging molly or dropkick but never got enough recognition and didn't want to burn out their career by the time they were 30 with nowhere to go.

  55. Jazzy7664

    @bearblaster420 why rip , Im new !

  56. U ime naroda

    beautiful harmonies

  57. deraxo

    My absolute favorite song of the dreadnoughts!
