She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Glowing with amber light
Waiting for a man, a riverboat gambler
Said that he'd return tonight
He used to waltz on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Loving the whole night through
Til the river boat gambler went off to make a killing
And bring it on back to you
Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi queen
That stole her man away
Bayou Sam from south Louisianne
Had gambling in his veins
Evangeline from the maritime
Was slowly going insane
High on the top of the hickory hills
She stands in the lightening and thunder
Down on the river, the boat was asinkin'
She watched that queen go under
Evangeline, Evangeline
Curses the soul of the Mississippi queen
That stole her man away
