George Hamilton


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 carrying me
to 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.


Bei Liveauftritten werden bisweilen noch weitere Strophen gesungen:

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
