He was sitting there, his brush in hand
 Paining waves as they danced upon the sand
With every stroke he brought to life
The deeper of the ocean against the morning sky
I asked him if he only painted ocean scenes 
He said for twenty dollars, I'll paint you anything 

 Could you paint me a Birmingham?
Make it look just the way I plan
A little house on the edge of town
 Porch going all the way around 
Put her there on the front yard swing  Cotton dress make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again 
If you could paint me a Birmingham 

He looked at me with knowing eyes
And took a canvas from the bag there by his side
 Picked up a brush and said to me
"Son, just where in this picture would you like to be?"
I said, "If there's any way you can,
 Could you paint me back into her arms again?"

 Could you paint me a Birmingham?
Make it look just the way I plan
A little house on the edge of town
 Porch going all the way around 
Put her there on the front yard swing  Cotton dress make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again 
If you could paint me a Birmingham 

 Paint me a Birmingham 
Make it look just the way I plan
A little house on the edge of town
 Porch going all the way around 
Put her there on the front yard swing  Cotton dress make it early spring
For a while she'll be mine again 
If you could paint me a Birmingham 

Oh, paint me a Birmingham
