Dave Van Ronk - Gamblers Blues St James Infirmary chords

Chords
Transpose
Am E7 AmIt was down at old Joe's bar room
Am Fmaj7 C E7 At the corner by the square
Am E7 Am Am/G They were serving drinks as usual
Fmaj7 E7 AmAnd the usual crowd was there
Am E7 AmOn my left stood big Joe MacKennedy
Am Fmaj7 C E7 His eyes were bloodshot red
Am E7 Am Am/G And as he turned to the crowd around him
Fmaj7 E7 AmThese were the very words he said.
Am E7 AmI went down to St. James Infirmary
Am Fmaj7 C E7 I saw my baby there
Am E7 Am Am/G Stretched out on a long, white table
Fmaj7 E7 AmSo young, so cold, so fair
Am E7 Am Seventeen coal-black horses
Am Fmaj7 C E7 Hitched to a rubber-tied hack
Am E7 Am Am/G Seven girls goin' to the graveyard
Fmaj7 E7 AmOnly six of them are coming back
Am E7 AmLet her go. Let her go, God bless her
Am Fmaj7 C E7 Wherever she may be
Am E7 Am Am/G She may search this wide world over
Fmaj7 E7 Am And never find another man like me
Am E7 Am When I die just bury me
Am Fmaj7 C E7 In my high-top Stetson hat
Am E7 Am Am/G Place a twenty-dollar gold piece on my watch chain
Fmaj7 E7 Am My gang will know I died standing pat
Am E7 AmI want six crap-shooters for my pallbearers
Am Fmaj7 C E7 A chorus girl to sing me a song
Am E7 Am Am/G Put a jazz band on my hearse wagon
Fmaj7 E7 Am To raise hell as we roll along
Am E7 AmLet her go. Let her go, God bless her
Am Fmaj7 C E7 Wherever she may be
Am E7 Am Am/G She may search this wide world over
Fmaj7 E7 Am And never find sweet man like me
Am E7 Am Now that you've heard my story
Am Fmaj7 C E7 I'll take another shot of booze
Am E7 Am Am/G And if anyone here should ask you
Fmaj7 E7 Am I've got the gambler's blues
Am E7 AmLet her go. Let her go, God bless her
Am Fmaj7 C E7 Wherever she may be
Am E7 Am Am/G She may search this wide world over
Fmaj7 E7 Am And never find sweet man like me
