Abilene Rose   
recorded by Marty Robbins
written by
James B. Hosale

All you young cowboys come gather around
I'll tell you a story of Abilene town

Of two young lovers as true lovers know
The girl in this story is Abilene Rose

G7 C
Rose Rose Abilene Rose
G7 C
Your memory still lives in my heart
G7 C
R-o-ose Abilene Rose
G7 C
We promised we never would part

Rose was so pretty in her gingham gown
She was the fairest in Abilene town

Her eyes were as bright as the stars up above
Every one knew when she chose me to love

repeat #2

We courted each other out under the moon
We planned to be married the first day of June

Then I started drinking and gambling you see
I broke her young heart and then she left me

repeat #2

I got into trouble and had to leave town
Rose got married and then settled down

She was as happy as happy could be
With her young cowboy and their family

repeat #2

This is the story I promised to tell
All you young cowboys remember it well

If you find true love don't tear it apart
Marry that true love don't break her young heart

repeat #2

G7 C
Forever we must live apart
