Abilene Abilene
   Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
   Women there will treat you mean
   In Abilene my Abilene

I sit alone most every night
Watch those trains pull out of sight
Don’t I wish they were carrying me
Back to Abilene my Abilene

Crowded city there ain’t nothing free
Nothing in this town for me
Wish to the Lord that I could be
In Abilene sweet Abilene
