  • 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."
    "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, find you gone
    Rub 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 the mountains high
    Or is it the deep blue sea?"
