Traditional blues

I went down to St. James Infirmary.
          Chord diagramG minorGm       Chord diagramA7A7
I saw my Sweeheart there.
Chord diagramDmDm    Chord diagramA7A7   Chord diagramDmDm
Lying on a table,
            Chord diagramA7A7        Chord diagramDmDm
So cold, so white, so fair.
             Chord diagramA7A7      Chord diagramDmDm
I went up to see the doctor.
              Chord diagramG minorGm      Chord diagramA7A7
``She's very low'' he said.
  Chord diagramDmDm           Chord diagramA7A7     Chord diagramDmDm
I went back to see my baby
                      Chord diagramA7A7           Chord diagramDmDm
And great God she was lying there dead

I went down to old Joe's bar room.
Down on the corner by the square.
They were serving drinks as usual
And the usual crowd was there.
On my left stood Joe MacKennedy.
His eyes were bloodshot red.
He turned to the crowd around him
And these were the words he said.

Let her go. Let her go, God bless her.
Where ever she may be.
She may search this wide world over
But she'll never find another man like me.
When I die please bury me
In a high top stetson hat.
Put a gold piece on my watch chain,
So the boys will know I died standing pat.

Get six gambelers to carry my coffin.
Six chorus girls to sing my song.
Put a jazz band on my tail gate
To raise hell as we roll along.
This is the end of my story
So let's have another round of booze.
And if anyone should ask you just tell them
I've got the St. James Infirmary blues.
