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

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


Verse 2

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


Repeat Chorus


followed by Bm,G,A

 	 	 Chord diagramD MajorD
Put her there in the front yard swing
 	 	 	 Chord diagramB minorBm
Cotton dress make it, early Spring
 	 	 	 Chord diagramG+G 	 Chord diagramA augmentedA
For a while she'll be mine again
 	 	 	  Chord diagramD MajorD
If you could paint me a Birmingham
