Circle left
Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town that I've ever seen

Left allemande, you dosado
Left allemande that corner girl, now weave that ole ring
Abilene, Abilene
Dosado and promenade that old ring
Women there they don't treat you mean in Abilene
My Abilene


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now heads (sides) square thru 4 hands you know
Around your corner do a dosado
Swing thru, the boys you run
You ferris wheel, those centers pass thru
You slide thru, then square thru go 3/4 round
Swing that corner, promenade that ole town
Women there they don't treat you mean in Abilene
My Abilene


TAG

Swing her boys
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.
