Abilene

Abilene

 

As the sun went down, it was so serene

I fell asleep on coffee and nicotine

I never thought I would relax

I’d burn every single bridge

To make sure that I never go back

If you promise to get me out of Abilene

 

The West Texas sun seems to get hotter every day

I’m alright with that if they let me on my way

The more time I spend out here on my own

The more I want to be headed West, headed home

If you promise to get me out of Abilene

 

All the years of booze and smoke have led to this

I’m alright with that ‘cause “it is what it is”

That train left the station a long time ago

I won’t trade any of the times I had on board you know

If you promise to get me out of Abilene
