Randy Newman - Birmingham
Tekst en muziek: Randy Newman
(1974)






Got a wife, got a family
Earn my livin’ with my hand
I’m a roller in a steel mill
Downtown Birmingham



My daddy was a barber
The most unsightly man
He was born in Tuscaloosa
He died right here in Birmingham



Birmingham, Birmingham
The greatest city in Alabam’
You can travel ’cross this entire land
There ain’t no place like Birmingham



Got a wife named Mary
But she’s called Marie
We live in a three room house
With a pepper tree
I work all day in the factory
That’s alright with me



Got a big black dog
His name is Dan
Lives in my backyard in Birmingham
The meanest dog in Alabam’
Get ’em Dan



Birmingham, Birmingham
The greatest city in Alabam’
You can travel ’cross this entire land
There ain’t no place like Birmingham
