Sweet Abilena looks out at the Midwestern sky
She said, "I feel like a bird in a cage
I said "I'm gonna miss you" then I made her promise to write
Since we were tall as the corn in the spring
So anxious to grow in the new summer rain

The tiny heart of the baby she carried inside
Watched her get married and caught the bouquet
I made her dreams mine
From a seat by the window on wings made of steel
Where young tears that once fell like warm summer rain

Closer to thirty but farther away in her eyes
Each night she kisses and rocks them to sleep while
