Got a wife, got a family; earn my livin' with my hand.
      C            Am         D7       G7           C   G7

 My daddy, was a barber; and a most un-sightly man.

He was born in In Tusca-loosa,

 Birmingham, Birmingham;

 The greatest city in Ala-bam'.
C        C7                 F  F/E  D7
 You can travel 'cross this en-tire land,

  F        F/E        D7                 G             G7
I work all day in the factory; that's al-right with me.

 Got a big black dog, whose name is Dan,

 Lives in my backyard, in Birmingham.
