Abilene  Damien Jurado


Play the above 3 times for the Intro before walking up to C on the fifth string like: 0-2-3
[C]I fell in[G/C] love with a girl of[Am] nineteen [2-0-2 on 4tb as in Intro]
[C]A black-haired[G/C] girl I[Am] called Abilene [Walk up to C on 5tb]
[C]Young[G/C] girl,[Am] where's your husband?
[C]Sadly, she re[G/C]plied, I do not[Am] have one
[C]Then it's you I'll[G/C] marry[Am] with your parents' permission
[bumming: Am - C - G/C - Am ] 
[C]No fine[G/C] sir, [Am]they will not let me marry
For[C] I am a young girl
And[G/C] you are a man without[Am] money
Then I'll [C]come by your w[G/C]indow
[Am]Tonight when they both will be sleeping
[bumming: Am - C - G/C - Am ] 
[C]Outside you[G/C]r window[Am] in a carriage I will be waiting
They'll[C] awake to find you[G/C] gone
Open their[Am] eyes and think they're dreaming
And[C] never did they[G/C] think
That their[Am] Abilene would leave them
[bumming: Am - C - C/G - Am ] 
[C]Now fine[G/C] sir, [Am]where is it you shall take me?
Is it [C]in the mountains[G/C] high
Or[Am] is it the deep blue sea?
[bumming: Am - C - G/C - Am ]
