"St. James Hotel" as written by and Mary Karlzen....
At the St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
They say that a gunslinger named Wright died there a long time ago
In a poker game one afternoon, he was called out of the room
And the cards he hid, well they fell to the floor
He don't play cards no more

At the St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
They say that Frank and Jesse stayed there a long time ago
They rode into town like two strangers
No one questioned who they were
They needed a night to sleep it off
I was all alone in the upstairs hall when from behind I heard him call
"You must never never sell the St. James Hotel"

The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico

Well I bought this hotel about a year ago
It was all broken down and no one ever told of all the ghosts
That still walk the halls, I can hear 'em shooting up the walls
And I know I will never sell the St. James Hotel

The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
The St. James Hotel outside of Mexico
