GUEST,Dave MacKenzie Chord Req: Evangelina (Hoyt Axton) (23) Lyr Add: EVANGELINA (Hoyt Axton, Higgenbotham) 19 Nov 08


It's the middle of the night so I can't check them out, but I used to do it in E (capoed up to G) and had an F# and G# (no minors). For the record, here are the words I used:

EVANGELINA
(Axton and Higgenbotham)

Well I dream in the morning she brings me water,
And I dream in the evening that she brings me wine;
Just a poor man's daughter from Puerto Peņasco -
Evangelina in Old Mexico.

There's a great hot desert south of Mexicali;
If you don't have water, boy, you better not go;
Tequila won't get you across that desert - no, no,
To Evangelina and Old Mexico.

And the fire I feel for the woman I love is drivin' me insane,
Knowin' she's waiting and I can't get there;
God only knows that I rack my brains, trying to find a way
To reach that woman in Old Mexico.

And I met a kind man, he guarded the border,
Said you don't need papers - I will let you go;
I can tell that you love her by the look in your eyes now,
She's the rose of the desert in Old Mexico.

And the fire I feel for the woman I love is drivin' me insane,
Knowin' she's waiting and I can't get there;
God only knows that I rack my brains, trying to find a way
To reach that woman in Old Mexico.

And I dream in the morning she brings me water,
And I dream in the evening she brings me wine;
Just a poor man's daughter from Puerto Peņasco -
South of the border in Old Mexico;
Evangelina - I miss you so.

By Axton and Higgenbotham. As sung by Hoyt Axton on Fantasy Double LP F-79009 "Bread and Roses".
