VERSE
A
Working on the road across this great big world
          E7
I've been rolling like a stone, I never get back home
               D7
Yes, I've been long-gone
    E7                           A
And boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues


VERSE
A
Been across the ocean to the south sea isles
        E7
Yeah, I travelled to the east and west for mile and miles and miles
              D7
And I've been long-gone
    E7                           F
And boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues


CHORUS
E
 Across the world I've seen
E
  People and places
E
  Could be the same
F
 But with a different name

VERSE
  A
I wouldn't change the things I do for anything
             E7
But I'd just like to hear the message of the streets again
          D7
Give me a ticket
      E7                           F
Cause boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues


VERSE
   A
It may be kind of homely but it sure is sweet
  E7
Industrial Revolution put it on its feet
           D7
But it's a long, long way
E7                           F
Boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues


CHORUS
E
 Across the world I've seen
E
  People and places

  Could be the same

 But with a different name

VERSE
     A
I'll go and stay awhile and all the folks I meet
                E7
They'll say "You won't stay long, you got them travelling feet
               D7
You'll soon be long-gone
     E7                           F
'Cos boy, you got the rest of the world blues!"

  People and places
E
  Oooh, ooh (everywhere I’ve been)
F
 La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la la, la
