lyrics

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

Let her go, let her go, God bless her heart
Wherever she may be
She can search this whole wide world over
But she'll never, never find a sweet man like me

When I die
Bury me
In straight laced shoes
I want a box back coat
And a Stetson Hat
Put a twenty
Dollar gold piece
On my watch chain
So the boys'll know that I died, standin' pat

Let her go, let her go, God bless her heart
Wherever she may be
She can search this whole wide world over
But she'll never find a sweet, sweet man like me

I went down to the St. James Infirmary
Saw my baby there
She was stretched out on a long, long white table
So cold, so sweet, so fair
