Ton petit cœur, il est barré dedans l’armoire,Dans l’armoire de mon amour, mais, jolie fille,Il y a pas longtemps, tu m’as promit de me soigner,Et m'aimer, mais, pour toujours, mais, jolie fille.Ton petit cœur, il est barré dedans l’armoire,Dans l’armoire de mon amour, mais, jolie fille,Mais, moi, j'connais un jour avenir, t’auras du regret,Pour ça t'as fait, mais, z-avec moi, il y a pas longtemps.

Your little heart, it's locked inside the closet,In the closet of my heart, well, pretty girl,Not long ago, you promised to look after me,And love me, well, forever, well, pretty girl.Your little heart, it's locked inside the closet,In the closet of my heart, well, pretty girl,Well, I know one day in the future, you'll regret this,For what you've done, well, with me, not long ago.
Abe would go on to play with many country giants before settling in to play with his own family band later in life. He periodically played on KWKH Shreveport "in the Louisiana Hayride days".1
