Keith Whitley - Birmingham Turnaround Lyrics




Caught a plane to Birmingham
Leaving you was my plan
Then head on south by any means
Thought I might blend in 'round New Orleans

But when the plane got off the ground
I saw your face in a cloud
Saw your tears out on the wing
Don't guess my heart was free to leave

Birmingham would have to wait for a little later date
And I said I'd see you later New Orleans
'Cause I knew my rambling ways had seen their better days
And suddenly I had a change in dreams

Caught a plane from Birmingham
Back in your arms is where I am
At times we laugh and talk about
The day I did the Birmingham turnaround

Birmingham would have to wait for a little later date
And I said I'd see you later New Orleans
'Cause I knew my rambling ways had seen their better days
And suddenly I had a change in dreams

Caught a plane from Birmingham
Back in your arms is where I am
At times we laugh and talk about
The day I did the Birmingham turnaround

And now we laugh and talk about
The day I did the Birmingham turnaround

  4. Disco Daddy

    30 years today May 9th 1989 I lost my favorite male country music singer. I remember that day very clearly it was raining here that day. I guess they were tears from heaven for us because we lost one of the greatest artist.

  5. Margo Bradley

    Lorrie was the reason for most of his songs God have mercy on her soul

  6. rudy hyde

    I heard "Flower in your hair" by Dale Watson...took me right back to this song...I'm not educated in musical theory or anything but these songs share a lot. Really like both songs though. And DAMN I wish Mr. Whitley was still around.

  7. Michael Naylor

    Lorrie Morgan tried to save him, but no one was going to save this tortured genius and his immaculate southern drawl

  8. Jeff Lipinski

    THIS IS SO DARN GOOD BY KEITH WHITLEY.

    Keith,
    We love you buddy,
