About this tab version
This tab is based off of Snook Eaglin's rendition of St. James Infirmary from his album "New Orleans Street Singer." The chords and lyrics are as accurate as one could put together, with the exception of a few lines of lyrics that are difficult to understand, and instead were replaced with similar lyrics.

[VERSE 1]

       Dm          Gm      Dm       A7
I went down to St. James Infirmary, 
Dm               A7
See if my baby's there
        Dm                 Gm          Dm
She was stretched out on a long, white table
   E7b9      A7#5     Dm   A7
So sweet, so cold, so fair


[VERSE 2]

        Dm          Gm            Dm  A7
Let her go, let her go, god bless her
Dm               A7
Wherever she may be
        Dm        Gm               Dm
She can look this whole wide world over
    E7b9               A7#5     Dm A7
And never find another man like me


[VERSE 3]

       Dm          Gm               Dm          A7
When I die you can bury me in Edwin Clapp shoes
Dm                              A7
Box back coat, with a 20 dollar hat
      Dm        Gm               Dm
Put a 20 dollar gold piece in my pocket
            E7b9          A7#5          Dm  A7
And let the fellas know I died standing pat

Dm               A7
Wherever she may be
        Dm        Gm               Dm
She can look this whole wide world over
    E7b9               A7#5     Dm A7
And never find another man like me

Really good, the Gm should be played as a Bb - same chord in essence but much easier to play from a dm as it's a quick change
