Birmingham
Am7
It's three a.m. and Virgil's passed out on the sofa
Dsus2
a fifth of Jim Beam on the floor
Am7
She's packed her bags, she slips the key out of his pocket
Dsus2
she's careful not to slam the door
    C6                              D
and as she drives she rubs her rosary
      C add 9                      Bm7
she's never been so all alone, she never felt so free 
          A7       G add 9
she's got miles to go
    F         Em
got faith and hope

'Cause there's another chance and someday soon

And as the rain falls down upon the interstate
C add 9                Bm7
Any doubts she had are all but washed away
     
     A7       G add 9 
One long look back 

      F        Em     
At   Bir.ming..ham...
