Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Circle left
To Abilene...Abilene
Prettiest town that I've ever seen

You do a left allemande, dosado with your queen
The boys star left around the ring
You're gonna turn thru at home, and do a left allemande
Come back one and promenade that old land
Women there won't treat you mean
In Abilene...my Abilene


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

The heads (sides) *promenade, half way you go
Star thru, pass thru, and do a dosado
Spin chain thru, the girls circulate two times around you go
The boys circulate, turn thru and then
Left allemande the corner lady, promenade that old ring (land)
Take a walk with a brand new queen
To Abilene...my Abilene


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)   

*Square thru 4 hands you know, then corner dosado

TAG

Women there won'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.
