                [Intro]
G G/F# Em7 D C D G

[Verse 1]
      G              G/F#         Em7      D
Round here it's the bills and the lack of jobs
          C         D     G
That dominates our table talks
     G            G/F#    Em7     D
But tonight as I buttered up my bread
       C                  D      G
Momma said, "guess who I saw at Walt's?"
   G        G/F#        Em7       D
I heard her name, and I felt the pain
       C       D      G
Of excitement and regret
G         G/F#  Em7    D
Just like that, in my mind,
       C      D   G
I was twenty-one again

[Pre Chorus]
Am                           D
I wonder if I'm the reason why

[Chorus]
      G      G/F#   Em7
That Becky's back in Birmingham
   C       D     G
I bet she never left
  G                   Em7
I doubt this place is in my heart
     C            D  Dsus4 D
That Becky never left
   Am              D
I wonder if she's hummin'
         C       C/B     Am
Our old song "The Way I Am"
          C              D       G
Now that Becky's back in Birmingham

[Verse 2]
        G         G/F#    Em7        D
Yeah, I guess she never caught that dream
     Cadd9     D        G
That she left here to chase
G           G/F#   Em7          D
She's been burning wild through mine
        Cadd9      D     G
Like a can't-be-put-out flame
        G         G/F#     Em7        D
Yeah, I wonder if she got rid of that ring
       Cadd9   D      G
Or does she  have it still?
     G        G/F#           Em7             D
Does she ever wish her "no" could have been "yes"?
   Cadd9    D     G
The way I always will

[Pre Chorus]
Am                           D
I guess there's only one way to find out

[Chorus]
       G      G/F#   Em7
While Becky's back in Birmingham
  C       D     G
I bet she never guessed
    G        G/F#     Em7
I doubt this place is in my heart
      C              D Dsus4 D
That Becky never left
   Em7              D
I wonder if she's thinkin'
         C        C/B    Am
The same thoughts that I am
 C              D       G
Now that Becky's back in Birmingham

[Bridge]
C
Here I stand, reelin'
C
I got that first-time front-porch kiss stealin'
C                                                   D Dsus4 D
How fallin' feels while she looks into my eyes and smiles

[Final Chorus] *Capo moves down to 6*
G      G/F#   Em7
Yeah, Becky's back in Birmingham
       C       D      G
And a few will never guess
        G      G/F#     Em7
Yeah, I made a mark on Becky's heart
     C                   D Dsus4 D
That she can't quite forget
       Em7                D
Yeah, things are back to being
             C        C/B       Am
The way they always should have been
C              D       G
Now that Becky's back in Birmingham

Becky's back in Birmingham
