[Intro]
C D C G

[Verse 1]
G
Welcome to the end of being alone inside your mind
           C                                             G
You're tethered to another and you're worried all the time
       D                                                 C                     Am    D C
You always knew the melody but you never heard it rhyme
           G
She is fair and she is quiet, Lord, she doesn't look like me
        C                                                    G
She made me love the morning, she's a holiday at sea
       D                                                       C                     Am G
The New York streets are as busy as they always used to be
                                     D        G
But I am the mother of Evangeline

[Verse 2]
G
The first things that she took from me were selfishness and sleep
        C                                                    G
She broke a thousand heirlooms I was never meant to keep
        D                                                 C                                 Am G
She filled my life with color, cancelled plans, and trashed my car
                                                  D
But none of that is ever who we are
G
Outside of my windows are the mountains and the snow
   C                                                     G
I hold you while you're sleeping and I wish that I could go
D                                            C                                Am G
All my rowdy friends are out accomplishing their dreams
                                     D        G
But I am the mother of Evangeline

[Bridge]
                    D                                                    C                     G
They've still got their morning paper and their coffee and their time
               D                                                  C                        G
And they still enjoy their evenings with the skeptics and the wine, oh
       B                                                 C                   Am
But all the wonders I have seen, I will see a second time
         G                                               D
From inside of the ages through your eyes

[Verse 3]
G
You were not an accident where no one thought it through
        C                                                       G
The world that stood agaisnt us made us mean to fight for you
        D                                                               C                     Am D C
And when we chose your name we knew you'd fight the power too
             G
You're nothing short of magical and beautiful to me
       C                                          G
I'll never hit the bigtime without you
     D                                                        C                     Am G
So they can keep their treasure and their ties to the machine
                                          D       Em
Cause I am the mother of Evangeline
C                                                                    Am               D C
They can keep their treasure and their ties to the machine
G                                       D        G
Cause I am the mother of Evangeline
C              Am    G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
C              Am    G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
C              Am    G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
