St. James Infirmary Blues
Traditional - as by Snooks Eaglin

I went down to that St. James Infirmary
See if my baby is there
She was stretched out on long white table
So sweet, so cold, so fair

  Let her go, let her go, God bless her!
  Wherever she may be
  She may look this wide world over
  And never find another man like me 

When I die you can bury me
In my high-top Stetson hat
Put a twenty-dollar gold piece in my pocket
And let the fellows know I died standing pat
