St. James Infirmary (Cocker Joe)

I went down to st james infirmary To see my baby there She was stretched out on a cold white table So sweet...so lean...and so fair Let her go...let her go...god bless her Wherever she may be She can search the whole wide world But she'll never find another man like me When I die you can bury me in plain lace shoes Stetson with a twenty dollar hat And put a thirty dollar gold piece on my watch chain And let the fellas know that I died standing pat I went down to st james infirmary And I stole my baby back She was stretched out on a long white table So sweet...so cold...and so fair
