Sweet Abilena  looks  out at the midwestern sky
sweet seventeen with a faraway look in her eyes
She said "I feel  like a bird  in a cage 
But come September  I'm flying away"
I said "I'm gonna miss you"  then i made her 
promise to write

Since we were tall as the corn  in the spring 
We shared   every secret, shared  every dream 
So anxious to grow  in the new summer  rain 
And bloom like a rose on the Calico Plains

How could she hear as we laughed  on that  warm summer night
The tiny  beart of the baby she carried inside
I stood beside her when September came  
Watched her get married  and caught the bouquet
And like  those  hand me down dresses she gave me
I made hger dreams mine

From a seat by  the window on  wings made of steal 
I stared at the patchwork over the fields 
Where young tears that once fell like warm  summer rain 
Were turning to snow on the Calico Plains

Sweet Abilena looks out at the  midwestern sky 
Closer to thirty but farther away in her eyes 
She holds  her babies liek she holds her dreams 
Each night  she kisses and rocks them to sleep while
She reads the letters she makes me promise to write

Sweet Abilene looks out at the midwestern sky
