Rising Appalachia – St James Infirmary lyrics
Here we go
Well I went down to the St James Infirmary
Where I saw my baby lyin' there
Stretched out on the cold white table
So cold, so cold, and so bare
Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
You can search this whole world over
You ain't never find a sweet baby like me
When I die, lord, I want you to bury me
In my high-top Stetson hat
Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain
So all the boys can know I died standin' high
Now baby when I die I want you to bury my body
Underneath the roots of an old oak tree
I'm gonna spread my wings and
Take to the sky
'Cause even that
Ain't gonna stop me
I went down to the St James Infirmary
Where I saw my baby lyin' there
Stretched out on the cold white table
So cold, so cold, and so bare
Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
You can search this whole world over
You ain't never find a sweet baby like me
Well I went down to that old Joe's bar room
I had seven women on my track
When I came home later on that ev'ning lord
Only six of them were coming back
Well you can search this whole world over
Baby, you can search it high and low
But you ain't never find a pretty little baby like me
No matter, no matter where you go
I went down to the St James Infirmary
Where I saw my baby lyin' there
Stretched out on the cold white table
So cold, so cold, and so bare
Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
You can search this whole world over
You ain't never find a sweet baby like me
I went down to the St James Infirmary[eeeehaha! WOO!]
Where I saw my baby lyin' there
Stretched out on the cold white table
So cold, so cold, and so bare
Let her go, let her go, God bless her[aaahaaaaa!]
Wherever she may be
You can search this whole world over
You ain't never find a sweet baby like me
