Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four boys promenade once inside the ring
Get back and swing your gal
Join hands and circle left
Allemande left your corner and weave the ring
To Abilene, my Abilene
Swing and promenade
The women there don't treat you mean
In Abilene


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round the ring
Sides square thru four in time
All the way and do the right & left thru
Eight chain 6 across the ring
To Abilene, my Abilene
Swing your corner, promenade
The women there don't treat you mean
In 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.
