Boulder To Birmingham Lyrics
Demo Chords & Pdf

Since Emmylou recorded this one with a capo on the 1st, I decided to cover it here in this same key. But of course the capo is always optional. What really matters is what key is most comfortable for you to sing. 

For chords in this one you'll need the following:

  • Gbm 
  • A7 
  • E7 
  • B
  • Esus

These are in no particular order.

The rhythm on this could be a simple down down up down up down up and repeat. But this is one of those feel type songs where you can shuffle strum in various places and switch things up as you go along. But try the pattern above as a start and modify as required.


Boulder To Birmingham Lyrics

I don't want to hear a love song
I got on this airplane just to fly
And I know there's life below
But all that it can show me is the prairie and the sky

And I don't want to hear a sad story
Full of heartbreak and desire
The last time I felt like this
I was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire

And I stood on the mountain - in the night and I watched it burn
I watched it burn, I watched it burn.

I would rock my soul - in the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life - in his saving grace.
I would walk all the way - from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see - I could see your face.

Well you really got me this time
And the hardest part is knowing I'll survive.
And I have come to listen for the sound
Of the trucks as they move down out on ninety five

And pretend that it's the ocean - coming down to wash me clean

I would rock my soul - in the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life - in his saving grace.
I would walk all the way - from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see - I could see your face.

If I thought I could see, I could see your face.

Ummmmmm
