Electric Light Orchestra

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are a British rock group from Birmingham, England who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO were formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album. more »

Working on the road across this great big world 
I've been rolling like a stone, I never get back home 
Yes, I've been long-gone 
And boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

Been across the ocean to the south sea isles 
Yeah, I travelled to the east and west for mile and miles and miles 
And I've been long-gone 
And boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

Across the world I've seen 
People and places 
Could be the same 
But with a different name.

I wouldn't change the things I do for anything 
But I'd just like to hear the message of the streets again 
Give me a ticket 
'Cos boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

It may be kind of homely but it sure is sweet 
Industrial Revolution put it on its feet 
But it's a long, long way 
Boy, I've got the Birmingham Blues.

Across the world I've seen 
People and places 
Could be the same 
But with a different name.

I'll go and stay awhile and all the folks I meet 
They'll say: You won't stay long, you got them travelling feet 
You'll soon be long-gone 
'Cos boy, you got the rest of the world blues.

Across the world I've seen 
People and places 
Could be the same 
But with a different name.

Across the world I've seen 
People and places 
Could be the same 
But with a different name.
