                                                      Chatham County Line

                               Birmingham Jail

                     Intro: Am C G Am x2    
                       Am                 C
                  (VI) Four little girls tying their sash
                              G                  Am
                       In the basement room that day
                       Am             C
                       Poking fun and making jokes
                                      G                 Am
                       Before getting on their knees to pray

                 (VII) Just so young with all their dreams
                       and years to the end
                       Strewn away in the rubble
                       By the hatred of scared white men

                (VIII) It was early December
                       in the year of '63
                       George Wallace defied
                       what the courts they did decree

                 (VIV) They said make your school doors open
                       for the child of black and white
                       Wallace clenched up both his fists
                       and called out for a fight

                       Am                 C
                (Chor) Down in the Birmingham jail
                       Am                 C
                       Down in the Birmingham jail
                       Am                   C 
                       You had a chance to live your life
                       But now your locked...
                       In the Birmingham jail

                  (VV) When the locals heard the news that day
                       Their blood began to boil
                       They decided the only good colored man
                       Was down beneath the soil

                 (VVI) So with their hat and money
                       They began to conspire
                       And soon in Birmingham the air was thick
                       With Powder and Fire
