[Intro]
A D D A
A D D A

[Verse 1]
A Bm D AHis feet lay heavy on the road that led to Birmingham
A G#m F#m E G AUnseeing eyes, defeated cries, the mysteries of men
A Bm D AThe many hears, the helpless tears that left the troubled brow
A G#m F#m E G AA man once tall, he fought them all, but he is older now
A D D A [Verse 2]
A Bm D AFor in your youth, you think the truth will always win the game
A G#m F#m E D ASome men are kings, some men are rooks, some men are pawns to blame
A Bm D ABut if your skin is coloured black, well the dice are hidden in
A G#m F#m E G AThe minds of fools who twist the rules, so you can never win
[Chorus]
A C#m F#m E DBirmingham, Birmingham, underneath your face
F#m E DThere's nothing but a space, you're hollow
A D D A [Verse 3]
A Bm D AUnlighted sky, begins to cry, the shabby coat is weak
A G#m F#m E D AAnd homes with windows dressed in warmth, and mouths that never speak
A Bm D AHis mind is dead, his visions spread that pass before his feet
A G#m F#m E G A D D AAnd thankfully he wears that dream that shields him from the street
[Verse 4]
A Bm D AGoodnight my friend, this is the end, you'll never cry again
A G#m F#m E G AYou'll never have to smile away the bastards and the pain
A Bm D AIs it too late, or can you wait to take another turn
A G#m F#m E G AAnd walk together down that road that leads to Birmingham
[Chorus]
A C#m F#m E DBirmingham, Birmingham, underneath your face
F#m E DThere's nothing but a space, inside you
A D D A [Chorus]
A C#m F#m E DBirmingham, Birmingham, underneath your face
F#m E DThere's nothing but a space
[Outro]
Amaj7 Dmaj7 You're hollow
Amaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Dmaj7
