Thread Name: Tune Req: St. James Infirmary
Subject: RE: Tune Req: St. James Infirmary
I don't know definately but i think it comes from a ballad called St. James Hospital. Ive only heard Pete Seeger on America's Favorite Ballads Vol. 3, but it was played around with by Pete, Woody, Cisco H. (as I learned above) and maybe Leadbelly.
