Abilene, Abilene  Prettiest town I ever seen
 Folks down there don't treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene 

I sit alone most every night
 Watch them trains roll out of sight 
Wish that they were carryin' me
To Abilene, my Abilene 

 Crowded city, ain't nothin' free
Nothin' in this town for me
Wish to God that I could be
In Abilene, my Abilene 

How I wish that train would come
Take me back where I come from
Take me where I want to be
In Abilene, my Abilene 

 Rotgut whiskey numbs the brain 
If I stay here I'll go insane  Think I need a change of scene 
To Abilene, my Abilene 

 Outside my window cold rain falls 
Sit here starin' at the walls 
If I was home, I'd be serene 
In Abilene, my Abilene
