Lyrics

He was driving through the darkness on a stretch of highway 10
Just outside New Orleans and headed home again
Got no company at all except a Louisiana moon
His memories and a radio that only plays
Old Ray Charles tunes

You might say he's nothing special, he's rarely heard or seen
Never gonna be a cover boy on People magazine
But he's got that driving hunger for a love that makes him real
And if he's got to drive all night to get it right
It ain't no big deal

[CHORUS] Abilene
Woman got eyes like he's never seen
Abilene
You know that he's been waiting
just anticipating all that love
Abilene

It's a rough and tumble journey when the road won't lead you home
With a soul as black as asphalt and a heart as hard as chrome
But that neon in the distance says there's hope somewhere ahead
He sees her name in billboard glory, letters six foot high and midnight red

CHORUS

You could take all the women in the world and multiply by two
Still they couldn't satisfy me half as much as you
So I'm driving through the darkness on a stretch of highway 10
Just outside New Orleans and headed home, I'm headed home again

CHORUS
