She said her mind was made up,
As she put on her make-up,
Said there was nothing here for her,
She just packed up her suitcase,
And she walked right out that front gate,
With her taxi waiting at the curb,

Too many empty nights alone,
Too late I realize,
It's a cryin shame it took her tears,
To open up my eyes,

I should have seen, Abeline,
On her mind,
Her leavin me, and Tennessee,
Far behind,
Should have seen her growin' lonely,
All alone there waitin' on me,
All the warnin' signs were there,
But I was blind,
I should have seen Abeline,
On her mind,

Last night the band played Dallas,
I sang the song I wrote about us,
And you could feel the sadness in the air,
After the show was over,
I felt a hand lay on my shoulder,
Turned around and found her standin' there,

She said after all these years,
It's nice to know your dreams came true,
And the wedding band there on her hand,
Told me that hers had to,

I should have seen, Abeline,
On her mind,
Her leavin me, and Tennessee,
Far behind,
Should have seen her growin' lonely,
All alone there waitin' on me,
All the warnin' signs were there,
But I was blind,
I should have seen Abeline,
On her mind,
I should have seen Abeline,
On her mind,
Abeline,
On her mind
