OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
To Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I ever seen

Your corner allemande, dosado your own
The men star left one time
Turn your partner by the right, your corner allemande
Dosado and promenade the land
Women there don't treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene


FIGURE    Basic, unknown progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) square thru you know
Meet your corner and dosado
Swing thru, boys run
Wheel & deal, right & left thru
You'll do a flutter wheel, the corner you'll swing
Swing there and promenade you know
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.
 
Comments

Tommy passed away several years ago in Eastern Washington.
He still has relatives, I believe in Escondido, California.
He had a record on the Sage label titled "Rainbow
Connection", but have never see or heard it Kappie
