Evangeline --- John Harrelson

 

Come [D]on Evangeline and [A7]dance this night away.
Your
[A7]Papa he won’t miss you un-[D]til the light of day.
Come
[D]on Evangeline, don’t you [A7]hear the music say:
[A7]
“Come, come away … Evangeline, dan-[D]ser!
 

[D]Out there on the bayou, [A7]shining like a star,
The
[A7]moon that hovers overhead, it [D]knows just who you are.
And
[D]when you come to town, the [A7]boys all come alive.
[A7]
Don’t you hear them call: “Evange-[D]line”?
 

Come [D]on Evangeline and [A7]dance this night away.
Your
[A7]Papa he won’t miss you un-[D]til the light of day.
Come
[D]on Evangeline, don’t you [A7]hear the music say:
[A7]
“Come, come away … Evangeline, dan-[D]ser!
 

I [D]loved you since I saw you --- be-[A7]fore I could call your name.
I
[A7]never loved before you and I’ll [D]never love again.
[D]
When you come to town, I [A7]hope I’ll cross your mind.
[A7]
Come, come to me, my Evange-[D]line.
 

Come [D]on Evangeline and [A7]dance this night away.
Your
[A7]Papa he won’t miss you un-[D]til the light of day.
Come
[D]on Evangeline, don’t you [A7]hear the music say:
[A7]“Come, come away … Evangeline, dan-[D]ser!
