Evangeline by The Band


E
(Intro)
A
She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
E
Alone in the pale moonlight
Waiting for a man, a riverboat gambler
A
Said that he'd return tonight
They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
E
Loving the whole night through
'Til the riverboat gambler went off to make a killing
A
And bring it on back to you.
D A
Evangeline, Evangeline
E A
Curses the soul of the Mississippi queen
E A
That pulled her man away.
Bayou Sam, from the South Lousianne
Had gambling in his veins
Evangeline, from the Maritimes(*)
Was slowly going insane.
High on the top of Hickory Hill
She stands in the lightning and thunder
Down on the river the boat was a-sinking
She watched that queen go under
