Versuri/Lyrics "Evangeline" Alexandru Andries

------------------------------------------

(Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris 1981)

She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi 
Longing to tell the by?? (alone in the pale moonlight)
Waitin' for a man, a rambler and a gambler 
Said that he'll return tonight...
They used to walk on the banks of the mighty Mississippi 
Love her the whole night through 
Till the river cutter gambler (went) off to make a killin' 
(And) bring him back to you... 
Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen 
That pulled her man away...

Bayou Stan from the South Louisiana
Had gambling in his veins, 
Evangeline from the Maritime 
Was slowly goin' insane.
Fly (high?) on the top of the Hickory Hill 
Standing alone in the thunder, 
Down on the river so far a-sinkin' 
She watched the 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.
