Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: St. James Infirmary
I have a version of it on my myspace that I do. I learned it from Dave Von Ronk so my lyrics are pretty much like he did it. I have changed a few basically by dropping a word or two. Watch chain I never say chain because of the way I say it. Probably because of my accent. I am from Ky and draw some words out more than Dave. It's not intentional but watch chain ends up being to long to fit most of the time lol. The chords I play are Am, E7, Am, E7 bouncing back and forth. I wiil go up to Am and E7 on the 5th fret. I also do a walk of Am, D9, C, Dsus,F, E7, Am. I just sort heard that walk in my head when I started playing it so I added it. It just felt right to me.
