D
Evangeline, she's on her own
            A                        D     G  A
Just barely seventeen, when she left home
D                                           G
Don't know where she's been, or where she's goin',
           D               A            D      G  D
She is the queen of make-believe, Evangeline.

          A                  D
I still remember this little girl,
                A                        D
Black eyes just starin' at this mean old world
            G                  D
Went off to find some American dream,
                    A      G                D       G  A
Train ticket in the pocket, of her new blue jeans

Chorus

She went out dancin', on a Saturday night
Silk stockings and high heels, looking fine and just right
On Sunday mornin', she's on her own
Head lyin' on the back stair, by the telephone

Chorus

I still remember this little girl,
Black eyes just starin' at this mean old world
Went off to find some some American dream,
Train ticket in the pocket, of her new blue jeans
