Isobel Campbell – St. James Infirmary lyrics

I went down to St. James Infirmary
I heard my baby groan
And I felt so broken hearted
She used to be my
Used to be my very own

And I tried so hard to keep from crying
My heart felt just like lead
She was all that I had to live for
I just can wish it
Can wish that it was me instead

Now she's gone
She's gone, may God bless her
Wherever she may be
She has searched the whole wide world over
She'll never find
Never find another man like me
