Verse 1:

      C    G9     C7     F        F/E            D7
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,

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                 G             G7
I work all day in the factory; 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.
C                 E7     Am      D7           G7
 He's the meanest dog in Alabam'; get 'em Dan!

 Birmingham, Birmingham,

 The greatest city in Ala-bam'.

 You can travel 'cross this en-tire land,

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