Thread Name: Origin: Saint James Infirmary Blues
Subject: RE: Origin: Saint James Infirmary Blues
Is it possible that this song is originally just a lament for a life spent having random one-night stands, not attached to a specific place, and became attached to various different locations in the British Isles before it came to America?
