"Evangeline" as written by and Ian Mcnabb....
It was sometime after midnight
I was looking for a friend
My headlights lit her body
By some pine trees on a bend
I slowed down right beside her
I turned the music down
She looked around and climbed inside
She didn't make a sound


Well soon we started talkin'
I asked her for her name
She said it's not important
But I'll tell you anyway
My mother loved the bayou
My daddy worked the land
The named me after what they loved
So the world would understand


We stopped just passed the crossroads
She thanked me once again
I didn't want to leave her
But I drove on just the same
I thought about her story
Words whispered from her mouth
Her beauty and her innocents
Where credit to her sound


I could not believe
She was gone when I returned
The forest evening chorus
was the only sound I heard
Now if you ever see her
Be sure to say hello
Her level thumb
My stop you
If you're westbound and alone
