Oh, Evangeline 3/4 Key F
I have always loved visiting the Annapolis Valley and the Evangeline Trail. I finally read through the Longfellow poem about Evangeline and Gabriel and found it quite interesting so I wrote this song based on that.
I do the main vocals and harmonies on this one...
use a guitar tuned in a "Low F Tuning", play piano and bass drum on this song. As always there are some etherial effects in the background now and then.
V1) Through the hills she wanders alone
In the days long after the fall
She comes here to tell us a tale of two worlds
She comes here to answer the call
V2) The sun and the moon still shine on the bay
Back in the home of her dreams
The song of the siren rings soft through the trees
Stories of places unseen
Ch1) O-o-oh Evangeline (repeat 3 times)
V3) Gabriel's gone, gone far away,
Gone without saying goodbye
Bound for New England or North Carolina
Lost in the forest to die
V4) The Sisters of Mercy will brighten your way
No longer will you be alone
Fall into the arms of your long lost love
Gabriel's finally come home
