Buffalo Ballet lyrics

When abilene was young and gay
When abilene was young and gay
And thunder storms filled up the days
And thunder storms filled up the days
The cattle roam outside the town
The cattle roam outside the town

Sleeping in the midday sun x4
Sleeping in the midday sun x4

Then tracks were laid across the plain
Then tracks were laid across the plain
By broken old men in torrid rain
By broken old men in torrid rain
The towns grew up, and the people were still
The towns grew up, and the people were still

Sleeping in the midday sun x4
Sleeping in the midday sun x4

We all joined in
We all joined in
(and) we all joined hands
(and) we all joined hands
We all joined in
We all joined in
To help run this land
To help run this land

Then the soldiers came, long long ago
Then the soldiers came, long long ago
Rode through the town
Rode through the town
And mowed down those
And mowed down those

Sleeping in the midday sun x4
Sleeping in the midday sun x4

Gold came and went, quickly spent
Gold came and went, quickly spent
And the people broke down
And the people broke down
And often drowned
And often drowned
From the wealth and the pain
From the wealth and the pain
Of old abilene
Of old abilene

Sleeping in the midday sun x8
Sleeping in the midday sun x8
