Subject: RE: Lyr Req: St. James Infirmary
My dad sang:
Roll out that rubber tyred carriage,
Roll out that old tattered hack,
'Cause there's twelve men goin' to the graveyard
And eleven comin' back.
I always though that he credited Jack Teagarden as his source.
Manitoba Hal sings:
Put a gang of ukuleles on my hearse wagon
To raise hell as we roll along.
I like to follow this song with Didn't He Ramble.
I always imagine it taking place in New Orleans.
