Verse 1:

      C    G9      C7
Got a wife,  got a family,
F        F/E            D7
 Earn my livin' with my hand.
      C            Am
I'm a roller, in a steel mill,
D7       G7           C    G7
 In down-town Birming-ham.

Verse 2:

 My daddy, was a barber,
F      F/E     D7
 And a most un-sightly man.

He was born in In Tusca-loosa,

But he died right here in Birming-ham.

Chorus 1:

C            F
 Birmingham, Birmingham,
C             Am      D7  G7
 The greatest city in Ala-bam'.
C        C7                 F  F/E  D7
 You can travel 'cross this en-tire land,
                C             G       C
But there ain't no place like Birming-ham.

C
 Wife's named Mary, but she's called Marie,
F                                    C
 We live in a three room house with a pepper tree.
  F        F/E        D7
I work all day in the factory;
          G              G7
That's al-right with me.

Verse 4:

C                G9                 C7
 Got a big black dog, whose name is Dan,

 Lives in my backyard, in Birmingham.

 He's the meanest dog in Alabam';

 Get 'em Dan!

But there ain't no place like Birming-ham.
