Tommy Collins – Birmingham lyrics

I've never been so blue as I am now in this old town
You don't know how homesick I am to see the streets of my hometown
I left in search of greener grass but oh what a fool I am
There's just no place that I have found with greener grass than Birmingham
Birmingham Alabam a mighty pretty town the town from I am
And I'm gonna settle down in Birmingham
It's a town I'll soon be seein' then I'll feel like a human bein'
I'm southworth they're gonna pitch my tens in Birmingham
[ piano - guitar ]
I'm gonna buy some big red roses for my girl when I come home
There's nothing good enough to bring the little girl who wears my ring
And I'm goin' there just as soon as I can back to my hometown
And I'll never say goodbye to them that little girl in Birmingham
Birmingham Alabam...
