Ab - i- lene Ab - i -lene
pre-ti-est town you ev- er seen
People there don't treat you mean in Ab-i-
lene my Ab-i- lene =

I sit alone most every night
I watch them trains roll out of sight
And I wish that they were carrying me
To Abilene, my Abilene

Crowded city, there ain't nothin' free
There's no one and nothin in this town for me
And I wish to God that I could be
In Abilene, my Abilene
