    Lyrics

    (Don Cook, Ronnie Rogers, Mark Wright)

    Summer after graduation
    Two kids stuck in Alabama
    We'd be lovers any way we could
    A ten buck wedding ceremony
    A guy outside the courthouse told me
    The weather down in South Beach sure was good
    So we hit the road like any dreamers would.

    Chorus:
    She was mine for a time in Miami
    Thought I had her in the palm of my hand
    Like the sunrise the truth finally hit me
    That her heart was halfway back to Birmingham.

    --- Instrumental ---

    This ain't what she really wanted
    So baby went on back to Mama
    Found a note when I got home last night
    Left a fifty for the landlord
    Nothin' here to stay around for
    Ain't but one way left to make it right
    So I'm headed for that Alabama line.

    Chorus:
    She was mine for a time in Miami
    But things don't always work out like you plan
    Now I'm nearly out of gas and it's raining
    But I'm almost halfway back to Birmingham
    Like the sunrise the truth finally hit me
    That her heart was halfway back to Birmingham...
