Evangeline  written by Robbie Robertson
Covered by Emmylou Harris   

Song can be played capo'd 1; 
In that event, the Fb is a "D" AND the Bb a "B"

Eb
She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
                  Bb
Alone in the pale moonlight
Bb
Waitin' for a man, a riverboat gambler
                      Eb
Said that he'd return tonight

They used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
                       Bb
Lovin' the whole night through
Bb
He was a riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
                        Eb
And bring it on back to you
Ab         Eb
Evangeline Evangeline
Bb                     Eb
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
     Bb             Eb
That pulled her man away

SOLO

Eb
Bayou Sam from South Louisian'
                    Bb
Had gamblin' in his veins

Evangeline from the maritime
                 Eb
Was slowly goin' insane

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

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