about

A tale, deliberately vague. I try not to confuse the picture with a bunch of facts. Something went seriously wrong and a guy lit out for parts unknown. I have only driven through this town, but it sure has a singable name, just ask Randy Newman!

lyrics

Birmingham

What brought you to Birmingham?
What sent you away?
How'd you go from what you were
To what you are today?
To what you are today?

Love 'em and leave 'em
How you used to do
You let some girl with hazel eyes
Do the same to you
Do the same to you

What went wrong in Birmingham?
I heard you pulled out fast
You ain't the kind to cut and run
Leave someone a mess
Leave someone a mess


Birmingham Birmingham
Town got the best of you
Nobody knows where you ran
Nobody has a clue
Nobody has a clue


What went wrong in Birmingham?
I guess we'll never know
You ain't the kind to cut and run
It was just your turn to go
Just your turn to go
Your turn to go
ust your turn to go
