"Meanwhile Back In Abilene" lyrics

Meanwhile Back In Abilene

Moving all around
Moving all around
Won't you settle down
In this old town
On the move
Honey that's my groove

Travel everywhere
Breathing in the air
I don't have a care
In this old world
And I feel fine
Everything is mine

Meanwhile back in Abilene
The sun is coming up
And the milkman's making all the rounds
He made when I was just a pup
Barbershop will open up
And Jackson's drugstore too
And they'll talk about
This poor young wandering fool

Taking in the sights
See the city lights
Smiling at the girls
And being cool
Having fun
My life has just begun

Fishing in the stream
With a piece of string
All I catch is turles and old boots
And I don't mind
Cause I'm feeling fine

Meanwhile back in Abilene
The sun is going down
And the drive-in restaurants
The only place to go
To hear a sound
Drive-in crowd know each and every one
By their first name
And they'll talk about me
Wonder if I've changed

Moving all around
Moving all around
Won't you settle down
In this old town
On the move
Honey that's my groove

Travel everywhere
Breathing in the air
I don't have a care
In this old world
And I feel fine
Everything is mine

Taking in the sights
See the city lights
Smiling at the girls
And being cool
Having fun
My life has just begun

Fishing in the stream
With a piece of string
All I catch is turles and old boots
And I don't mind
Cause I'm feeling fine
