Birmingham Blues Lyrics

Working on the road across
This great big world,
Yeah, I've been rolling like a stone
I never get back home.
Yes, I've been long-gone,
Boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

I've been across the ocean
To the south sea isles
Yeah, I travelled to the east and west
For miles and miles and miles
And I've been long-gone,
Boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

Across the world (across the world) I've seen
People and places (people and places)
Could be the same (everywhere I've been),
But with a different name.

Oh, I wouldn't change the things
I do for anything,
But I'd just like to hear the message
Of the streets again.
Give me a ticket,
'Cause boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

It may be kind of homely
But it sure is sweet,
Industrial Revolution
Put it on its feet
But it's a long, long way,
Boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

Across the world (across the world) I've seen
People and places (people and places)
Could be the same (everywhere I've been),
But with a different name.

I'll go and stay a while
And all the folks I meet
They'll say, "You won't stay long,
You got them travellin' feet
You'll soon be long-gone,
'Cause boy, you got the rest of the world blues."

Across the world (across the world) I've seen
People and places (people and places)
Everywhere I've been (don't you know it could be the same?),
But with a different name.

Across the world
People and places (people and places)
Everywhere I've been.

Across the world (across the world)
People and places (people and places)
Could be the same (everywhere I've been),
But you know, it's got a different name.

Across the world
People and places
Everywhere I've been...
