Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Abilene, Abilene, prettiest town that I've ever seen
Left allemande, dosado
Then the men star left one time
Turn your partner by the right hand 'round
Left allemande, and promenade on down
The women there don't treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads square thru and get me 4 hands 'round
Right hand star and roll in 'round the town
Heads star left go all the way back to Abilene
Go right and left thru
Swing thru and swing thru again
Men run right and promenade my friend
The women there don't treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene


TAG

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.
