Evangeline

Emmylou Harris

 Eb
 She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
 Bb
Alone in the pale moonlight
 Bb
 Waitin' for a man, a riverboat gambler
 Eb
Said that he'd return tonight

They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
 Bb
Lovin' the whole night through
 Bb
 He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
 Eb
And bring it on back to you
 AbEb
 Evangeline Evangeline
 BbEb
 Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
 BbEb
That pulled her man away

SOLO

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

Evangeline from the maritime
 Eb
Was slowly goin' insane

High on the top of a Hickory Hill
 Bb
She stands in the lightning and thunder

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