​St. James Infirmary

This song is by Jerry Reed and appears on the album Jerry Reed Explores Guitar Country (1969).

I went down to the St James Infirmary
I heard my baby moan
I felt so broken hearted
That woman used to be my own

So let her go let her go God bless her
Wherever she may be
She might search this whole wide world over
She ain't never gonna find a simple man like me

(Guitar - organ)
Now I went down to old Joe's barroom
It stands down on the square
They were drinkin' cold hard liquor
All the regular crowd was there

So let her go let her go God bless her...
Down in the St James Infirmary St James Infirmary
St James Infirmary and my baby's gone
In the St James Infirmary
