Tom Russell - Evangeline Hotel


CAPO: 3rd Fret




[Intro]
G   C   G   C   G   C   G   C

[Verse 1]
          G
Well, she moves like Betty Grable
         C               G
She's an actress waiting tables
                                           D
And all her tips are kept inside a wishing well
             G
She's got an agent down the hall
             C            G
He's got her photo on his wall
                         D           G
She's got a room at the Evangeline Hotel


[Verse 2]
             G
And from the tenth floor fire escape
        C                   G
She can see the great white way
                                                 D
But not the street and not the eyes of those who fell
               G
She dreams she sees her name in lights
                C           G
She dreams that dream every night
                        D           G
Room ten-o-four at the Evangeline Hotel


[Chorus]
              D
It's "Rock of Ages Cleft for Thee" 
             C              G
She's just a child of Tennessee
                                               D
Her daddy's girl, her golden curls locked in a spell
                G
Where you don't play your music loud 
          C              G
And there ain't no men allowed
                         D           G
On Friday nights at the Evangeline Hotel


[Instrumental]
G    C  G    D    G    C  G    D    G


[Verse 3]
            G
You make it here, so they declare
             C                 G
Then you can make it anywhere
                                                     D
Those old clichés ring through the halls just like a bell
            G
But tell it to the ones who wait 
           C           G
Behind the 23rd Street gate
                         D           G
On Friday nights at the Evangeline Hotel


[Chorus]
              D
It's "Rock of Ages Cleft for Thee" 
            C             G
She's going back to Tennessee
                                               D
She's got a watch and winter coat that she can sell
                G
She learned the hard unspoken rule 
               C                G
And things you never learned in school
                           D           G
All down the halls at the Evangeline Hotel


[Verse 4]
            G
And you can knock on any door
    C           G
Any room on any floor
                          D           G    C   G
It's all the same at the Evangeline Hotel
                                D           G
The house of dreams called the Evangeline Hotel 


[Outro]
G   C   G   C   G   C
