Birmingham Sunday

Words by Richard Farina; melody, traditional English ("I Loved a Lass")
Rise Up Singing chapter: Freedom, p.59

R.U.S. chords: E - - A - / E - D E B7 / E B7 E - / D - E -

My slight change: E - - A - / E - D E - / E B7 E - / D - E -

Come round by my side and I'll sing you a song I'll sing it so softly, it'll do no one wrong On Birmingham Sunday the blood ran like wine And the choirs kept singing of Freedom


That cold autumn morning no eyes saw the sun And Addie Mae Collins, her number was one At an old baptist church there was no need to run And the choirs kept singing of Freedom
