Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: St. James Infirmary
Hi People,

I always sing this version, which i havent seen in this thread.. does anyone recognise it, becouse I dont remember the source of this version to be honest :S


I went down to the St. James infirmary
I saw my baby there
Stretched out on a long white table, so sweet, so cold, so fair

Let her go, let her go, God bless her, wherever she may be
She can look this wide world all over,
but she'll never find a sweet love like me

Yes, sixteen coal black horses, to pull that rubber tied hack
Well, it's seventeen miles to the graveyard, but my baby's never comin' back
