It'd take about 900 miles round trip
To walk on the Gulf of Mexico
We'd jump in my daddy's beat up truck
Drive all night and don't look back
Momma she'd go crazy
Just wonderin' where we're at

Chorus:
Seventeen in Abilene
You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen
There're so many miles of open road
And so many places still left to go
Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene

It doesn't take much for us to drive away
Cause all we need's just a little bit of faith
I got fifty bucks in my pocket
It'll get us there, but maybe not back
The sun is shining from head to toe
And I don't think I'll ever let you go

Chorus:
Seventeen in Abilene
You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen
There're so many miles of open road
And so many places still left to go
Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene

I see the stars in your eyes
Let's start the rest of our lives tonight

Chorus:
Seventeen in Abilene
You and me, biggest sky you've ever seen
There're so many miles of open road
There're so many places still left to go
Seventeen, runnin' from Abilene
