Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left to Abilene, prettiest town I've ever seen
Walk around your corner see saw round your own
With your corner star thru, circle left
Well circle left, four ladies rollaway
You swing your girl and promenade her that way
Women there don't treat you mean
Swing her there, in my Abilene


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands you know
Around the corner do a dosado, spin chain thru
The girls circulate two times around you go
Boys run, bend the line, slide thru, square thru 3 hands
You swing the corner, promenade that old land
Women there don't treat you mean
Swing her there, in my Abilene


TAG

Swing 'em
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.
