Recorded by Emmylou Harris
Written by Robbie Robertson

She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Alone in the pale moonlight

Waiting for a man a riverboat gambler
Said that he'd return tonight

They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Loving the whole night through

He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killing
And bring it on back to you

Evangeline Evangeline
G7 C
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
G7 C
That pulled her man away

Bayou Sam from South Louisiana
Had gambling in his veins

Evangeline from the maritime
Was slowly going insane

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

Down on the river the boat was a sinking
She watched that Queen go under

Repeat #3 x2
