Down in the valley, in the valley so low
We hear out the window and
Hear the wind blow (3)
We hear out the window and hear the wind blow

The judge he will send us, clock will (ride?) down
Till all your friends (see) that you’re
Birmingham bound (3)
Till all your friends (see) that you’re Birmingham bound

Write me a letter, send it by mail
Address it all over that
Birmingham Jail (3)
'dress it all over that Birmingham Jail

The roses are red and the vi’lets are blue
Angels in the Heaven
Sing: I love you (3)
Angels in the Heaven sing: I love you

Write me letter, send it by mail
Send it in care of Birmingham jail
Birmingham Jail, love, Birmingham jail
Send it in care of Birmingham jail
