Evangeline Chords

   
                       Evangeline  
                    Robbie Robertson

A
She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
                  E
Alone in the pale moonlight
E
Waitin' 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
Lovin' the whole night through
A
He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
                        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

A
Bayou Sam from South Louisian'
                    E
Had gamblin' in his veins

Evangeline from the maritime
                 A
Was slowly goin' insane

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

Down on the river the boat was a sinkin'
                          A
She watched that Queen go under
D         A
Evangeline Evangeline
E                     A
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
     E             A
That pulled her man away
D         A
Evangeline Evangeline
E                     A
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
     E             A
That pulled her man away
