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

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.

 Wife's named Mary, but she's called Marie,

  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.

 The greatest city in Ala-bam'.

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