OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
To Abilene, the prettiest town that I ever did see
Your corner allemande, and you dosi your own
The men star left one time
You turn your partner by the right, your corner allemande
Swing your honey, promenade that old land
The women there don't treat you so mean
In Abilene, my Abilene


FIGURE    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

Heads square thru 4 hands you go
Around that corner do a dosado
Spin chain thru, girls circulate two
Two times around, turn thru
Left allemande, walk by your own
Swing the right hand lady and you promenade home
The women there don't treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

Abilene
 
 

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.

Lyrics by John D. Loudermilk, Lester Brown and Bob Gibson.
Recorded by George Hamilton, IV; Waylon Jennings.
