INTRO 	 A 	 E 	 E 	 A
A 	  	  	  	   E
She's been here workin all summer long
E 	  	  	  	  	 A
Pumping gas for the boats at the Copely Block
A 	  	  	  	  	  E
She's so brown from being in the sun all day
Boys from town hang around her paPA's place

A 	  	  	  	  E
Hey, you can see her at the boat dock
Walkin up the pier in her flip flops
Tying up lines to her tank top
Dipping for bait in the bait shop
D                                             A
Everyboy around would like to say that girl's mine
Summer's gonna end I know it
Oh were gonna miss you so 
E 	  	  	            A
Wish you didn't have to go ..Evangeline

A 	  	  	  	  	   E
Won't be long, she'll being going back to school
Going home, all the way to Baton Rouge
Her paPa, says he'll get along the best he can
And all the boys will be so brokenhearted again

Till the summer again

Repeat Chorus
E 	  	  	  	A 
Wish you didn't have to go Evangeline

I agree, this is a great song that never found the audience it deserved. One thing: Evangeline pumped gas for the boats on the "a cote de blanc." (that has a back accent over the a, a little roof over the c, a forward accent over the e, for Cajun purists) It means, literally, "The coast of white," or "the white coast." Don't ask me how I know that. (I went to LSU Baton Rouge) (blanc pronounce blong, rhymes with long) Also, "tyin' up the lines in her tank top":)
(and, be so broken-hearted "then")
Best to all of you,
