Cab Calloway - St. James Infirmary Lyrics

  • Folks, I'm goin' down to St. James Infirmary,
  • See my baby there;
  • She's stretched out on a long, white table,
  • She's so sweet, so cold, so fair.
  • Let her go, let her go, God bless her,
  • Wherever she may be,
  • She will search this wide world over,
  • But she'll never find another sweet man like me.
  • Now, when I die, bury me in my straight-leg britches,
  • Put on a box-back coat and a stetson hat,
  • Put a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch chain,
  • So you can let all the boys know I died standing pat.
  • An' give me six crap shooting pall bearers,
  • Let a chorus girl sing me a song.
  • Put a red hot jazz band at the top of my head
  • So we can raise Hallelujah as we go along.
  • Folks, now that you have heard my story,
  • Say, boy, hand me another shot of that booze;
  • If anyone should ask you,
  • Tell 'em I've got those St. James Infirmary blues.
