St. James Infirmary

trad.

Em Am Em C B7
I went down to old Joe's barroom, On the corner by the square.
Em Am Em C B7 Em Am
Well, the drinks were served as usual, And the usual crowd was there,
Em B7 Em
And the usual crowd was there.
 
Em Am Em C B
In a corner stood old Joe McKennedy, His eyes all bloodshot and red.
Em Am Em C B7 Em Am
He turned to the crowd around him, And these were the words he said,
Em B7 Em
And these were the words he said:
 
Em Am Em C B7
I went to St. James infirmary, I saw my baby there.
Em Am Em
She was layed out on a long white table,
C B7 Em Am Em B7 Em
So sweet, so cold, so fair, So sweet, so cold, so fair!
 
Went up to see the doctor, "She's very low," he said; 
Went back to see my baby: 
Good God! She's lying there dead! Good God! She's lying there dead! 
 
"Let her go, let her go, God bless her, Wherever she may be! 
She can search this wide world over, 
And never find a man like me, And never find a man like me! 
 
Well, if I die, please won't you bury me With my high top Stetson hat! 
Put a twenty Dollar gold piece on my watchchain, 
to let the boys know that I'm standing pat, to let the boys know that I'm standing pat! 
 
Get six gamblers to carry my coffin, Let six pretty girls sing me a song! 
Put a dixieland band behind my hearse wagon, 
To raise Hell while they roll me along, To raise Hell while they roll me along 
 
Now that's the end of my story; Let's have another round of booze 
And if anyone should ask you: 
I've got the St. James Infirmary blues, I've got the St. James Infirmary blues! 
Let her go, let her go, God bless her,...
