St. James Infirmary

This song is by Alex Harvey and appears on the compilation album Considering The Situation: Anthology (2003).

Well, I walked on home on the sidewalk
I began looking around
I looked everywhere I thought she'd be
My baby couldn't be found

And I passed by the big infirmary
And I heard my sweetheart moan
Gee It hurts me to see you here
You know you used to be my own

I went in to see the doctor
Your gal is low, he said
I went back in to see my baby
My God she lying there dead

Sixteen coal black horses
All hitched up in line
In that pretty buggy she's ridin'
Goodbye old gal of mine

When I die you can bury me standing
In my high top Stetson hat
Put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain
And tell the folks I died standin' pat

Let her go, God bless her
Wherever she may be
She can search this wide world all over
She'll never find a sweeter man as me

Sixteen coal black horses
All hitched up in line
In that pretty buggy she's ridin'
Goodbye old gal of mine
