    It was down by old Joe's barroom, on the corner of the square
    They were serving drinks as usual, and the usual crowd was there
    On my left stood Big Joe McKennedy, and his eyes were bloodshot red
    And he turned his face to the people, these were the very words he said
    I was down to St. James infirmary, I saw my baby there
    She was stretched out on a long white table,
    So sweet, cool and so fair
    Let her go, let her go, God bless her
    wherever she may be...
    She may search this whole wide world over
    never find a sweeter man as me....
    When I die please bury me in my high top Stetson hat
    put a 20 dollar gold piece on my watch chain
    The gang'll know I died standing pat

    Let her go, let her go God bless her
    Wherever she may be
    She may search this wide world over
    Never find a sweeter man as me
    I want 6 crapshooters to be my pallbearers
    3 pretty women to sing a song
    Stick a jazz band on my hearse wagon
    Raise hell as I stroll along
    Let her go Let her go
    God bless her
    Wherever she may be
    She may search this whole wide
    world over
    She'll never find a sweeter
    Man as me..
