Sweet Abilena looks out at the Midwestern sky
Sweet seventeen with a faraway look in her eyes
She said, "I feel like a bird in a cage
But come September I'm flying away"
I said "I'm gonna miss you" then I made her promise to write

Since we were tall as the corn in the spring
We shared every secret, shared every dream
So anxious to grow in the new summer rain
And bloom like a rose on the calico plains

How could she hear as we laughed on that warm summer night
The tiny heart of the baby she carried inside
I stood beside her when September came
Watched her get married and caught the bouquet
