Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: St. James Infirmary
Dave Van Ronk does a great version. His chorus, though, ends "Never find a sweetin' man like me." "Sweetin'", I take it, may be understood as "love-makin'", to put it delicately. I think this is more in the style and feeling of the song than the "sweeter man" referred to above--which I always used to sing too.
