Left handed
From the incredible musical, "The Unfortunates"

Em B7

EmBarkeep, barkeep, gimme another shot of that Old Crow
Em B7 EmTell you a story about my friend Big Joe
Em B7 EmSaid I was down in Old Joe's barroom
Em B7 EmRight there in the square
Em B7 EmWell all the usual suspects was assembled
Em B7 EmBig Joe Mckinny was there
Em B7 EmHe said "Boys I wanna tell you a story"
Em G B7His eyes were all bloodshot red
Em B7 Am Well he leaned down real low and he told me
Em B7 EmThese were the words he said
Em B7 Em"I went down to Saint James Infirmary
Em B7 EmI heard my baby groan
Em B7 EmShe was stretched out on a long white table
Em B7 EmShe used to be my very own
Em B7 EmOh let her go, let her go, god bless her
Em G B7Wherever she may be
Em B7 Am She can search that wide world over
Em B7 EmShe won't never find a meaner man than me"
Em B7 EmWhen I die bury me in straight lace shoes
Em B7 EmA box-back coat and a Stetson hat
Em B7 EmAnd put a twenty dollar gold chain on my daddy's old watch
Em B7 EmSo those boys know I died standing pat
Em B7 EmAnd give me six crap-shooters for pall-bearers
Em G B7Let a chorus girl sing me a song
Em B7 AmPut a red hot jazz band on my funeral march
Em B7 EmRaise hell as I roll along
Em B7 EmRoll out your old-time carriage
Em B7 EmI say roll out your old-time hat
Em B7 EmOh there's twelve men going down to the graveyard
Em B7 EmAnd eleven are coming back
Em B7 EmWell Big Joe, he's one mighty box man
Em G B7But the plague took the woman he loved
Em B7 AmLike it took old King Jesse before her
Em B7 EmIt'll come take your soul 'fore it's done
Em B7 EmNow that I told my story
Em B7 EmPour another shot of booze
Em B7 EmAnd if anyone should ever ask me, yeah yeah
Em B7 EmWell I got those Saint James Infirmary Blues, yeah yeah
Em B7 EmI went down
Em G B7I went down
Em B7 AmI went down
Em B7 EmI went down
