Bob the Postman Origin: Saint James Infirmary Blues (269* d) RE: Origin: Saint James Infirmary Blues 15 Nov 17


The first verse of ?The Bad Girl?s Lament? collected from Edward Hartley and published by Helen Creighton in ?Songs and Ballads from Nova Scotia? (1932):

As I walked out of St. James? Hospital,
St. James? Hospital one early morn,
I espied my only fairest daughter
Wrapped up in white linen as cold as the clay.
