           Am      E7    Am
It 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       Am
And the usual         crowd was there
 
            Am     E7           Am
On 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            Am
These were the very words he said.
 
           Am    E7         Am
I 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     Am
So 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     Am
Only six of them are coming back
 

            Am         E7             Am
Let 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       Am
I 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             Am
Let 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             Am
Let 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
