Abilene On Her Mind

Abilene On Her Mind

Buddy Jewell

She said her mind was made up
As she put on her make-up
Said there was nothing here for her
She just packed up her suitcase
And she walked right out that front gate
With her taxi waiting at the curb
Too many empty nights alone
Too late I realize
It's a cryin' shame it took her tears
To open up my eyes
I should have seen, Abilene
On her mind
Her leavin' me, and Tennessee
Far behind
Should have seen her growin' lonely
All alone there waitin' on me
All the warnin' sings were there
But I was blind
I should have seen Abilene
On her mind
Last night the band played Dallas
I sang the song I wrote about us
And you could feel the sadness in the air
After the show was over
I a hand lay on my shoulder
Turned around and found her standin' there
She said after all these years
It's nice to know your dreams came true
And the wedding band there on her hand
Told me that hers had to
I should have seen, Abilene
On her mind
Her leavin' me, and Tennessee
Far behind
Should have seen her growin' lonely
All alone there waitin' on me
All the warnin' sings were there
But I was blind
I should have seen Abilene
On her mind
I should have seen Abilene
On her mind
Abilene
On her mind
