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
               E7
Boys from town hang around her paPA's place

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

Verse2
A 	  	  	  	  	   E
Won't be long, she'll being going back to school
 	  	  	  	  A
Going home, all the way to Baton Rouge
                                           E
Her paPa, says he'll get along the best he can
                      E7
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,
Ed
