American blues song

As I was a-walking down by St. James' Hospital,
I was a-walking down by there one day,
What should I spy but one of my comrades
All wrapped up in flannel though warm was the day.

Some Appalachian versions called "St. James Hospital" modify the lyrics slightly to

Early one morning, past the St. James Hospital
Early one morning, morn in the month of May
When I looked through the window,
And I spied a dear cowboy
A dear cowboy, as cold as the clay
