Evona

[Lal Waterson]

I don't know of any recording of Evona by Lal Waterson herself. John Tams sang it on Oliver Knight's album Mysterious Day with Christine Collister singing backing vocals and Chris Parkinson playing the piano. Linda Thompson (vocals) and Teddy Thompson (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Van Dyke Parks (accordion, Hammond B3 organ) recorded it with slightly different text as Evona Darling for the tribute album Shining Bright: The Songs of Lal & Mike Waterson.

Lyrics

John Tams sings Evona Linda and Teddy Thompson sing Evona Darling

Evon our darling, living the way you do
Doesn't that make you feel a little blue, girl?
Him loving you like he do
Doesn't that make you love a little too, girl?

Evon our darling, living the way you do
Doesn't that make you feel a little blue, girl?
Him loving you like you do
Doesn't that make you love a little too, girl?

Evon our darling, going the way you've gone
Doesn't that make the day a little too long?
Him loving you like he's done
Doesn't that make you wonder what went wrong?

Evon our darling, going the way you've gone
Doesn't that make the day a little too long?
Him loving you like you've done
Doesn't that make you wonder what went wrong?

He's in love, Evon
You're in love with someone
Is he the one, Evon?
Or can it be anyone?

Do you remember? He can remember you
Evon our darling, doesn't that make you blue, girl?
Loving life like you do
Doesn't that make you love a little too, girl?

Do you remember? He can remember you
Evon our darling, doesn't that make you blue?
Loving you like you do
Doesn't that make you love a little too, girl?

He's in love, Evon
You're in love with someone
Is he the one, Evon?
Or can it be anyone?

He's in love with you Evona
So in love with you, Evona
Time has come for him to belong to someone
Time will come and you will too, Evona

Evon our darling, living the way you do
Doesn't that make you feel a little blue, girl?
Him loving you like he do
Doesn't that make you love a little too, girl?

Evon our darling, living the way you do
Doesn't that make you feel a little blue girl?
Him loving you like you do
Evon our darling, doesn't that make you blue?
