Evangeline Recorded by Emmylou Harris Written by Robbie Robertson
C She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi G7 Alone in the pale moonlight
Waiting for a man a riverboat gambler C Said that he'd return tonight
They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi G7 Loving the whole night through
He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killing C And bring it on back to you
F C Evangeline Evangeline G7 C Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen G7 C That pulled her man away
Bayou Sam from South Louisiana G7 Had gambling in his veins
Evangeline from the maritime C Was slowly going insane
High on the top of a Hickory Hill G7 She stands in the lightning and thunder
Down on the river the boat was a sinking C She watched that Queen go under
Repeat #3 x2
