Streets Of Laredo

Marty Robbins

 CFCGC
As I walked out in Laredo one day.

VERSE ONE

 CFCG
 As I walked out in the streets of Laredo,
 CFCG
as I walked out in Laredo one day.
 CFCG
spied a young cowboy wrapped all in white linen.
 AMDmGC
Wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.

CHORUS

 CFCG
Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the pipe lowly
 CFCG
Sing the dead march..as you carry me along
 CFCG
Take me to the valley there lay the sod o're me
 AmDmG7C
 I'm a young cowboy and know I've done wrong

.
VERSE TWO

 CFC
 I see by your outfit..that you are a c[]owboy.
 CFCG
These words he did say as I  boldly walked by
 CFCG
Come sit down be-side me and hear my sad story
 AmDmG7C
Got shot in the breast and I know I must die.

VERSE THREE

 CFCG
Go fetch me some water...a cool cup of water
 CFCG
To cool my parched lips then the poor cowboy said
 CFCG
before I re-turned his sprit had left him
 AmDmG7C
had gone to his maker, the cowboy was dead.

CHORUS REPEAT

 CFCG
Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the pipe lowly
 CFCG
 Sing the dead march..as you carry me along
 CFCG
Take me to the valley there lay the sod o're me
 AmDmG7C
I'm a young cowboy and know I've done wrong
