Evangeline Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

The Band never released this song Evangeline as a single. It appears on the box set entitled "The Last Waltz" from 1978. This was the original members of the band captured here performing before they split up and many have since passed on. The three chords needed for this song are:

  • G
  • C
  • D

As you can see, the rhythm pattern for thus one is pretty simple with a root down up down up root down up down up and repeat. Or you can play a bass note in the rhythm which would make it root down up down up bass down up down up.

There is a signature riff that's played on the accordion when you go down to the D chord but that can be duplicated here on the guitar. I've also put a picking break in here which follows the melody and then picks up the signature riff portion.


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
