Evangeline  Emmylou Harris



[Eb]She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Alone in the pale [Bb]moonlight
[Bb]Waitin' for a man, a riverboat gambler
Said that he'd return [Eb]tonight
They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Lovin' the whole night [Bb]through
[Bb]He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
And bring it on back to [Eb]you
[Ab]Evangeline [Eb]Evangeline
[Bb]Curses the soul of the [Eb]Mississippi Queen
That [Bb]pulled her man [Eb]away

SOLO

[Eb]Bayou Sam from South Louisian'
Had gamblin' in his [Bb]veins

Evangeline from the maritime
Was slowly goin' [Eb]insane

High on the top of a Hickory Hill
She stands in the lightning and t[Bb]hunder

Down on the river the boat was a sinkin'
She watched that Queen go [Eb]under
[Ab]Evangeline [Eb]Evangeline
[Bb]Curses the soul of the [Eb]Mississippi Queen
That [Bb]pulled her man [Eb]away
[Ab]Evangeline [Eb]Evangeline
[Bb]Curses the soul of the [Eb]Mississippi Queen
That [Bb]pulled her man [Eb]away
