Track Name: Saint James Infirmary
It was down in old Joe’s barroom—
On the corner of a square—
They were serving drinks as usual,
And the usual crowd was there.

He was standing at my shoulder,
And his eyes were bloodshot red—
He turned to the crowd around him,
And these were the words he said :

“I went down Saint James Infirmary,
Saw my baby there…
She was laid out on a cold, white table,
So cold, so white and fair…

“Let her go ! Let her go ! God bless her !
Wherever she may be…
She can search this whole wide world around,
She’ll never find a man as sweet as me.

“When I go to my grave,
Bury me in a high top Stetson hat !
Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain
So God knows I died standing pat.

I want six crapshooters as my pallbearers,
And a chorus to sing me a song !
Put a jazz band on my hearse wagon,
Raise hell as I roll along.

For twelve men are going to the graveyard,
And eleven are coming back
Twelve men are going to the graveyard,
And eleven are coming back…”
