George Hamilton IV – Abilene Lyrics

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

I sit alone most every night
Watch those trains pull out of sight
Don’t I wish they were carryin’ me back to Abilene
My Abilene

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene

Crowded city, there ain’t nothing free
Nothing in this town for me
Wish to the Lord that I could be in Abilene
Sweet Abilene

Abilene, Abilene
Prettiest town I’ve ever seen
Women there don’t treat you mean
In Abilene, my Abilene
