Am       F     E
to see my baby there

E        Am                E          Am
she was stretched out on a long white table
   F          E        Am
so smooth, so cold, so fair

(gradually get louder in strumming)

Am E

      Am         E            Am
Well, let her go. let her go, god bless her
Am       F       E
Wherever she may be
E       Am          E                 Am             F                  E              Am
she can search this whole wide world over but she`ll never find another sweet man like me

Am E

(gradually return to normal volume during the E)

E          Am   E              Am
Now when i die   I wanna be buried
Am              F                  E
in a box with a coat and a stetson hat
E        Am              E           Am                     F                E               Am
put a twenty dollar gold piece on my watch chain so all the Boys will know i died standin` pat

(gradually get louder in strumming)

Am E

F      Am       E                  Am                          F               E
I want six crap-shooters to be my pall-bearer. well them choir girls sing me a song
E    Am           E            Am                                  E             Am
and put a red hot jazz band on top of my head so we can raise hell as we go along


(gradually return to normal volume during the E)

E    Am    E                         Am               F                 E
now,       folks now you`ve heard my story, bartender pass me a shot of booze
E      Am     E           Am                 F               E
and if anyone should ever ask you, say i had the saint james Infirmary blues

Great song and great tab, but you credit rusty cage for writing it. This song dates back all the way to the 1920's and was made famous by Louis Armstrong.

yeah, the song has a very long history, but this was based off the version performed by Rusty Cage. Although he`s not the original writer, it still felt fitting to add his name.

I guess I agree although you should probably point that out.
