Lyrics found at the web site for some role-playing game. Sorry, I can't help you with the chords.

EVANGELINE
(Jamie Snider)

Standing on the shore looking so serene
Long black hair and old blue jeans
Loveliest woman I've ever seen
Evangeline.

The pool hall heroes all heave a sigh
Big city bosses get bashful and shy
Hearts beat faster when she walks by
Evangeline.

CHORUS: All around the world I'm bound to roam
Tired and hungry an all alone
I'll sing no more till I get back home
To you - Evangeline.

I first fell in love with her at age fourteen
Been lookin' for her every place I've been
She's a lover like no other and she's my queen
Evangeline.

I'm goin' on the highway, goin' by air
Goin' out west but I ain't goin' nowhere
I hope the Lord will hear my prayer
And carry me to Evangeline. CHORUS

I'll sing no more - till I get back home
To you - Evangeline.
