Evangeline

Album: How Will the Wolf Survive? (1984)
  • Evangeline is on the roam
    Just barely seventeen
    When she left home
    Don't know where she is
    Or where she's going
    She is the queen of make believe, Evangeline

    I can still remember this little girl
    Black eyes just staring
    At this big old world
    Ran off to find some American dream
    Train ticket in one hand
    In her new blue jeans

    Evangeline is on the roam
    Just barely seventeen
    When she left home
    Don't know where she is
    Or where she's going
    She is the queen of make believe, Evangeline

    She went out dancin' on a Saturday night
    Silk stockings and high heels
    Blue liner on her eyes
    But on Sunday morning she's all alone
    Head lying on the nightstand
    By the telephone

    Evangeline is on the roam
    Just barely seventeen
    When she left home
    Don't know where she is
    Or where she's going
    She is the queen of make believe, Evangeline
    She is the queen of make believe, Evangeline Writer/s: DAVID HIDALGO, LOUIS FRAUSTO PEREZ
