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
