Meanwhile Back In Abilene – Roger Miller

Movin’ all around, movin’ 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 Jacksons 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, ‘cos 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

Movin’ all around, movin’ 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
