    "Abilene" Lyrics

    Damien Jurado

    I fell in love with a girl of nineteen
    A black-haired girl I called Abilene
    Young girl, where's your husband?
    Sadly, she replied, I do not have one
    Then it's you I'll marry with your parents' permission

    No fine sir, they will not let me marry
    For I am a young girl
    And you are a man without money
    Then I'll come by your window
    Tonight when they both will be sleeping

    Outside your window in a carriage I will be waiting
    They'll awake to find you gone
    Open their eyes and think they're dreaming
    And never did they think
    That their Abilene would leave them

    Now fine sir, where is it you shall take me?
    Is it in the mountains high
    Or is it the deep blue sea?
