emmylou harris – evangeline lyrics

she stands on the banks of the mighty mississippi
alone in the pale moonlight
waitin’ for a man, a riverboat gambler
said that he’d return tonight

they used to waltz on the banks of the mighty mississippi
lovin’ the whole night through
to the riverboat gambler off to make a killin’
and bring it on back to you

evangeline, evangeline
curses the soul of the mississippi queen
that pulled her man away

bayou sam from south louisian’
had gamblin’ in his veins
evangeline from the maritime
was slowly goin’ insane

high on the top of a hickory hill
she stands in the lightning and thunder
down on the river the boat was a sinkin’
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
