Down in New Orleans 


       Evangeline I'm runnin' scared

Don't go home you'll find nothin' there

But a dream dying in the grasp of an English snare


Evangeline don't give up on us

Sell your soul if you feel you must

To survive trade to the devil the God we used to trust


Meet me down in New Orleans

We'll find just what it means to be free


Evangeline life's not always fair

Shelter hope from your despair

Call my name whenever the pain's too much to bear


Evangeline time has taken toll

I feel these bones are getting old

My Fleur de Lys come before my blood starts runnin' cold
