Thread Name: What is this song??? [Abilene]
Subject: RE: What is this song???
Synchronicity, or what! Yesterday, before this thread started, I had, for no apparent reason, an earworm from a song on a cheapo 1960s album called "Rod McKuen sings Folk" (yeah, I know, but it WAS the 1960s) including the verse:

"Abilene, Abilene,
Prettiest town I've ever seen,
Though I've only seen it in a magazine,
It's Abilene, my Abilene."

and I was wondering where the original came from!
