lyrics

Woke up this morning with time on my mind
She's a women, she is a friend of mine
She places the calls and I spend the dimes
Spent my time on that line

But oh that mistress time she sure has pretty eyes
Can't find the reason, can't find the time for a girl called Evangeline

Met her in a dream she had pink cigarettes
She said here's one for all of your regrets
Held out my hand, she held out her thumb
Ain't it funny how those dreams come undone

For little Evangeline though she sure's got a pretty mind
Can't find the reason, can't find the time oh darling Evangeline

Woke up this morning with time on my mind
She's a woman, she was a friend of mine
Time's got holes the sizes of dimes for a girl called Evangeline
For that Girl called Evangeline
Evangeline, Evangeline, Evangeline
