Intro:  
D  A  G  Em 

D         A   G            D 
When Abilene was young and gay 
D              A   G               D 
And thunder storms filled up the day 
     G         D   G             D 
The cattle roamed outside the town 

A                      Em 
Sleeping in the midday sun 
                       D 
Sleeping in the midday sun 
A                      Em 
Sleeping in the midday sun 
                       D 
Sleeping in the midday sun 

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

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

    F          G            Bb         D 
We all joined in and we'll all hold hands 
           F         G         Bb         A 
Yes, we'll all join in to help run the land 
     G              Dmaj7 
Then soldiers once, long, long ago 
G                      Dmaj7 
Rode through the town, rode down those 

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

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

They were sleeping in the midday sun 
Sleeping in the midday sun 
Sleeping in the midday sun 
Sleeping in the midday sun
