  Words and Music by Joe Primrose... aka Irving Mills

  Am  E7  Am  F  C  E7  Am  E7  Am  F  E7  Am

 Am                           E7     Am
Folks, I'm goin' down to St. James Infirmary,
         F    C     E7 
 See my baby there;
                  Am       E7          Am 
 She's stretched out on a long, white table,
     F         E         Am 
 So sweet, so cold, so fair.

                     E7        Am
 Let her go, let her go, God bless her,
           F       C  E7 
 Wherever she may be,
            Am         E7         Am   Am/G 
 She will search this wide world over, 
                   F                  E        Am
 But she'll never find another sweet man like me.

Break Am  E7  Am  F  C  E7  Am  E7  Am  F  E7  Am

              Am            E7           Am
 When I die, bury me in my straight-leg britches,
                               F       C   E7 
 Put on a box-back coat and a stetson hat,
         Am                E7           A7       Am/G 
 Put a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch chain, 
                         F           E7            Am
 So you can let all the boys know I died standing pat.

                        E7      Am
 An' give me six crap shooting pall bearers,
                     F        C    E7 
 Let a chorus girl sing me a song.
                Am               E7       Am
 Put a red hot jazz band at the top of my head
                  F               E7   Am
 So we can raise Hallelujah as we go along.

        Am                 E7       Am
 Folks, now that you have heard my story,
                            F            C      E7 
 Say, boy, hand me another shot of that booze;
      Am    E7     Am    Am/G 
 If anyone should ask you, 
           F                         E7       Am
 Tell 'em I've got those St. James Infirmary blues.

  An F. K. Tab,,,,Enjoy!!!!!!!
