It's a small town they call Besmer
Way down in Alabam
It's a small town they call Besmer
Way down in Alabam
It ain't no great big city
Only twelve miles from Birmingham

Me and my dirty buddy
Me and my Buddy, Sam
Me and my dirty buddy, Sam
We used to live in Besmer
But he moved to Birmingham

'Play it, Play it', 'My-my'

(piano, washbrd & guitar)

I'm quiet an I'm easy
Baby, don't think that I'm no lamb
I'm quiet an I'm easy
Baby, don't think that I'm no lamb
If you want something good, baby
Try somethin' from Birmingham.

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
