It was down by old Joe's barroom, on the corner of the square
On my left stood Big Joe McKennedy, and his eyes were bloodshot red

She was stretched out on a long white table,

Wherever she may be
Never find a sweeter man as me
When I die please bury me in my high top Stetson hat
The gang'll know I died standing pat
Let her go, let her go God bless her
She may search this wide world over

Three pretty women to sing a song
Raise hell as I stroll along
Let her go Let her go
Wherever she may be
World over
Man as me
