Abilene Rose recorded by Marty Robbins written by James B. Hosale
C All you young cowboys come gather around G7 I'll tell you a story of Abilene town
Of two young lovers as true lovers know C 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 G7 She was the fairest in Abilene town
Her eyes were as bright as the stars up above C Every one knew when she chose me to love
We courted each other out under the moon G7 We planned to be married the first day of June
Then I started drinking and gambling you see C I broke her young heart and then she left me
I got into trouble and had to leave town G7 Rose got married and then settled down
She was as happy as happy could be C With her young cowboy and their family
This is the story I promised to tell G7 All you young cowboys remember it well
If you find true love don't tear it apart C Marry that true love don't break her young heart
G7 C Forever we must live apart
