Buck Owens

Alvis Edgar Owens, Jr. (August 12, 1929 – March 25, 2006), better known as Buck Owens, was an American singer and guitarist who had 21 No. 1 hits on the Billboard country music charts with his band, the Buckaroos. They pioneered what came to be called the Bakersfield sound—a reference to Bakersfield, California, the city Owens called home and from which he drew inspiration for what he preferred to call American music. more »

[ Doyle Holly ]
Abilene Abilene prettiest town I've ever seen
Women there don't treat you mean in Abilene sweet Abilene
I sat alone most every night watched the trains pull out of sight
Don't I wish they were carryin' me back to Abilene my Abilene
Abilene oh Abilene...
[ steel ]
Crowded city there ain't nothing free nothin' in this town for me
Wish to the Lord that I could be back in Abilene sweet Abilene
Abilene oh Abilene...
Women there don't treat you mean in Abilene my Abilene
