Capo 3rd Fret

D,G,A,Bm


 	 D 	  	 G
He was sittin' there, his brush in hand
   A 	  	  	  	 D
Paintin' waves as they danced, upon the sand
 	 D 	  	 G
With every stroke, he brought to life
    A 	  	  	  	 D
The deep blue of the ocean, against the mornin' sky
G 	  	  	  	 A
I asked him if he only painted ocean scenes
G 	  	  	      A 	 
He said for twenty dollars, I'll paint you anything


Chorus:

 	  	  	    D
Well could you paint me a Birmingham
 	  	  	 Bm
Make it look just the way I planned
 	  	   G
A little house on the edge of town
 	  	      A
Porch goin' all the way around
 	  	  	 D
Put her there in the front yard swing
 	  	  	 Bm
Cotton dress make it, early Spring
 	  	  	 G 	  A
For a while she'll be mine again
 	  	  	    D
If you could paint me a Birmingham


Verse 2

 	 D 	  	 G
He looked at me, with knowin' eyes
      A 	  	  	  	     D
Then took a canvas from a bag there by his side
 	 D 	  	 G
Picked up a brush, and said to me
     A 	  	  	  	  	   D
Son just where in this picture, would you like to be
G 	  	  	       A
I said if there is any way you can
 	   G 	  	  	  	 A
Could you paint me back into her arms again


Repeat Chorus


followed by Bm,G,A

 	  	 D
Put her there in the front yard swing
 	  	  	 Bm
Cotton dress make it, early Spring
 	  	  	 G 	  A
For a while she'll be mine again
 	  	  	    D
If you could paint me a Birmingham
