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 travelled to the east and west for mile 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.

Repeat chorus

I'll go and stay awhile and all the folks i meet
They'll say "you won't stay long, you got them travelling feet
You'll soon be long-gone
'cos boy, you got the rest of the world blues!"

Repeat chorus

Repeat chorus
