EVANGELINE
(written by Robbie Robertson)

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
Ab Eb
Evangeline Evangeline
Bb Eb
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
Bb Eb
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
Ab Eb
Evangeline Evangeline
Bb Eb
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
Bb Eb
That pulled her man away
Ab Eb
Evangeline Evangeline
Bb Eb
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
Bb Eb
That pulled her man away
