George Hamilton IV Abilene lyrics


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
