Abilene  Dave Alvin

Capo 2nd fret
Intro: C Am F Dm (4x)
There's a g[C]reyhound bus
Leavin' the g[G]reat Northwest
[C]Takin' her tonight
Back down s[G]outh to Texas
She's been d[F]ancin' on tables
To pay rent and be able
To just get by and maybe stay c[Dm]lean.
[C]Abilene, Abil[Am]ene[F] [Dm]
[C]Abilene, Abil[Am]ene.[F] [Dm]
Well her d[C]addy'd get drunk
Then he'd h[G]it her hard
And her m[C]ama'd lie in bed
High on pills and t[G]alkin' to God
Bu[F]t like her beautiful tattoos
These old memories she can't lose
Since she ran away at f[Dm]ifteen.
[C]Abilene, Abil[Am]ene
[F]There's a [Dm]town ahead that[C] you've never [Am]seen
[F]Maybe it's[Dm] better if [F]you [Dm)]get off there and try to
[F]Forget ever[F]ything
[C]Abilene.[Am] [F] [Dm]
[C]Starin' out the window
At the [Am]long cold night
[C]Ahead on the horizon
Is another [Am]string of bright lights
She's [F]dreamin' of a man she's goin' to meet
In a bar on an Austin street
Maybe this one won't be so [Dm]mean.
[C]Abilene, Abil[Am]ene
[F]There's a [Dm]town ahead that[C] you've never [Am]seen
[F]Maybe it's[Dm] better if [F]you [Dm)]get off there and try to
[F]Forget ever[F]ything
[C]Abilene.[Am] [F] [Dm]
Bridge:
Am C F Dm (3x)
(Slowing) Dm F Am C
In a [C]Texas bar there'[Am]s a man sittin' alone
T[C]hinkin' of a girl he swore he'd [Am]wait there for
But he's [F]drinkin' beers and he's feelin' old
Rememberin' every lie he's told
'Til he changes his mind and he [Am]leaves.
[C]Abilene, Abi[Am]lene
[F]There's a [Dm]town ahead that[C] you've never [Am]seen
[F]Maybe it's[Dm] better if [F]you [Dm)]get off there and try to
[F]Forget ever[F]ything
[C]Abilene.[Am] [F] [Dm]
[C]Oh, Abilene, Abil[Am]ene[F] [Dm]
C Am F Dm (Repeat and fade)
