I went down to the St. James Infirmary
I saw my baby lying there,
She was laid out on a long white table,
So cold, so pale, so fair.

Let her go, let her go, god bless her
Wherever she may be,
She may search this wide world over,
She’ll never find a sweet man like me.

When I die bury me in my strait laced shoes,
Box back jacket and a stetson hat,
Put a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch chain,
So my friends know I died standing pat.

I want 6 crap shootin’ pallbearers,
6 chorus girls to sing me a song,
Put a red hot jazz band on my tailgate,
To raise hell, as I roll along.

Now that I’ve told my story,
I’ll take another bottle of booze,
And if anyone should happen to ask me,
I got those St. James Infirmary blues.
