It sure is cold tonight out here on this highway
And my mind is on someone warm and far away
Although it's been all wrong
I know I'd make it right
If I could be in Birmingham tonight

I'd take her to that place we used to go
Yeah, and we'd dance to that ol' jukebox just once more
I'd hold her close until the morning light
If I could be in Birmingham tonight

That Alabama moon would put a shine on
This ol' faded love of hers and mine
And I can't help but fee
That everything would be alright
If I could be in Birmingham tonight

Chicago ain't no place to be alone
And this old storm here in my heart just keeps raging on
But I know what to do to make it right
I think I'll make a call to Birmingham tonight

That Alabama moon would put a shine on
This ol' faded love of hers and mine
Now I can't help but feel
That everything would be alright
If I could be in Birmingham tonight

That Alabama moon would put a shine on
This ol' faded love of hers and mine
Now I can't help but fee
That everything would be alright
If I could be in Birmingham tonight
If I could be in Birmingham tonight
