She was still on my mind when I crossed the state line
Walked out a little too fast
I said some things that I didn't mean
And I should have taken 'em back

And I knew when I said 'em that voice in my head whispered
"Man, when are you gonna learn
You told her goodbye, you left with your pride
But you're gonna eat those words"

And now I'm havin' breakfast in Birmingham
Tryin' to swallow my pride
I got a plate full of memories
And not much appetite

There ain't nothin' like a cold cup of coffee
And a stale apology
I'm having breakfast in Birmingham
She's in Tennessee

It's a thunderin' sound, silver droppin' down
In an ol' pay phone
When you're makin' that call to say you were wrong
And it's ringin' like nobody's home

She's not the kind who'll cry and remind me
That I left and broke her heart
I'm prayin' she answer 'cause I gotta tell her
This time I went too far

And now I'm havin' breakfast in Birmingham
Tryin' to swallow my pride
I got a plate full of memories
And not much appetite

There ain't nothin' like a cold cup of coffee
And a stale apology
I'm having breakfast in Birmingham
She's in Tennessee
