Working on the road across this great big world
I've been rolling like a stone; I never get back home
Yes, I've been long gone
And, boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues

Been across the ocean to the South Sea Isles
Yeah, I traveled to the east and west for miles and miles and miles
And I've been long gone
And, boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues

[Chorus]
Across the world I've seen
People and places
Could be the same
But with a different name

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

[Chorus]

I'll go and stay awhile and all the folks I meet
They'll say "You won't stay long; you got them traveling feet
You'll soon be long gone
'Cause, boy, you got the rest of the world blues"

[Chorus: x2]
