Versuri Emmylou Harris - Evangeline



She stands on the banks of 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 
He was a 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
