Evangeline Lyrics

She stands on the banks - of the mighty Mississippi - alone in the pale moonlight
Waiting on a man - a riverboat gambler - who said that he'd return tonight
They used to waltz on the banks - of the mighty Mississippi - Loving the whole night through
'Til the riverboat gambler - went off to make a killing - and bring it on back to you

Evangeline, Evangeline - Curses the soul - of the Mississippi queen
That pulled her man away

Bayou Sam, from the south Lousianna - Had gambling - in his veins
Evangeline - from the maritimes - was slowly going insane
She stands on the top - of hickory hill - adoring the lightning and thunder
Down on the river - the boat was a-sinking - She watched that queen go under

Evangeline, Evangeline - Curses the soul - of the Mississippi queen
That pulled her man away

Evangeline, Evangeline - Curses the soul - of the Mississippi queen
That pulled her man away

Evangeline, Evangeline - Curses the soul - of the Mississippi queen
That pulled her man away
