OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Plus

Well join hands, circle left go movin' round the set
Go all the way till you're home
Hey, when you're there, walk around your corner
Turn the partner by the left
Head ladies center teacup chain and go
To Abilene, oh Abilene
Where the live oak trees are growing by the stream
The moon and stars at night are shining big and bright
I'll find a way to stay in Abilene


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Head two promenade halfway now with your maid
Walk right in and do a right & left thru
You flutter wheel go across the floor, and you sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and then slide thru
Now ladies lead dixie style, ya gonna hit your ocean wave
Ladies trade, boys turn back and promenade
To Abilene, oh Abilene
I'll find a way to stay in Abilene


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads square thru 4, four hands around you do
Around your corner lady dosado
You touch 1/4 and then, follow your neighbor and spread
Swing thru two by two, boy run right he said
Now ferris wheel come on in, hey centers pass thru
You swing that lady, promenade
To Abilene, oh Abilene
I'll find a way to stay in Abilene

Abilene  (1960)

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.
