Track Name: Evangeline (Nashville Version)
oh come clean, evangeline.
and oh, don't be mean, evangeline.

i had a stubborn cough in memphis
and i was wearing plaid
i had to get out before the well run dry
and i made my woman mad

and oh won't you sing, evangeline?
and oh you wear my ring, evangeline.

i had an aching gut in nashville
and i was feeling sad
so i had to get gone while the going's good
and the getting is getting bad

and oh it's all free, evangeline.
and oh to better things, evangeline.

since i changed my zip code
i've been lonelier now
but i'm followed by smoke and there's no one to watch my mouth

and oh be sweet, evangeline.
oh you're so keen, evangeline.
Track Name: Raining in Virginia
it's raining in virginia, and i can't go home
pass me a cigarette, there's one in my coat
it's raining in virginia, and i'm a long way from home
sister don't you haunt me when i leave town
the streetlights glow on me
and i wear a frown
so sister when you haunt me
won't you do it well?

and oh my sweet disposition
won't you carry me home
cause i can't find another that feels like her

i've got friends in kentucky
but what do they know
trying to find cheap beer and living in apartment homes
i've got friends in kentucky
what do they know

oh my sweet disposition
won't you carry me away from the crowds
cause my stomach hurts with anguish
and i'm on a cloud

it's raining in virginia, and i can't go home
pass me a cigarette, there's one in my coat
it's raining in virginia, and i'm a long way from home
