Saint James Infirmary - Van Morrison

Traditional arranged by Van Morrison
Exile Publishing Ltd / Universal Music Publishing Ltd

I went down to St. James Infirmary
To see my baby there
She was laid out on a long white table
So cold, so cool, so fair

Let her go, let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
She can search this wide world over
But she'll never find another lover man like me

When I die, want you to dress me in straight lace shoes
A box back coat and a stetson hat
I want a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch chain
So everybody goin? to know that I died standing pat
