"Drunkard's Blues" lyrics

Drunkard's Blues

Walking slow to the graveyard
I've lost everything I could lose
Now I've even lost my baby
I guess I've got the drunkard's blues

It was down at Big Joe's barroom
On the corner beyond the square
Everybody drinking good liquor
The regular crowd was there

So I strolled out on the sidewalk
Began to look around
Looking everywhere for my baby
But that sweet woman can't be found

It was down at St. James infirmary
I found my baby there
Stretched out on a long white table
So cold, so pale, so fair

So I strolled back down to the barroom
To get another drink of gin
The next thing you know I'm reeling
Rocking and drunk again

Sixteen coal black horses
All hitched up in a line
In that pretty buggy she's riding
Goodbye, old gal of mine

Walking slow to the graveyard
I've lost everything I could lose
Now I've even lost my baby
I guess I've got the drunkard's blues
