lyrics

I went down to St James Infirmary
I saw my baby there
She was laid out on a long white table
So sweet, so cold, so bare

Let her go, let her go, god bless her
She never did love me
She can search this wide world over and
Never meet a man like me

Break apart your bones
And put them back together
Tell your mama you're someone new
Feel the wind blowing, watch out
I can say what I feel to you

And give me six pallbearers
And a choir girl to sing me a song
Put a three string band on my hearse
Make hell as I roll along

Roll out your rubber carriage
Roll out your old time hat
Twelve men goin' to that graveyard
Eleven they are comin' back

Now that you've heard my story
Pour me another booze
And if anyone should ask you
I've got those accordion blues
