Streets Of Laredo

Marty Robbins

 DADAD
As I walked out in Lar-edo one day.

VERSE ONE

 DADA
 As I walked out in the streets of Lar-edo,
 DADA
as I walked out in Lar-edo one day.
 DADA
spied a young cowboy wrapped all in white linen.
 DADAD
Wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.

CHORUS

 DADA
Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the fife lowly
 DADA
Play the death march..as you carry me on
 DAD
Take me to the valley there lay the sod over(A)me
 ADADAD
   I�m a young cowboy and know I�ve done wrong

.
VERSE TWO

 DADA
 I see by your outfit..that you are a cowboy.
 DADA
These words he did say as I  boldly walked by
 DADA
Come sit down be-side me and hear my sad story
 DADAD
Got shot in the breast and I know I must die.

VERSE THREE

Take six white horses to carry my coffin,
Have six young cowboys to sing me a song
Take me to the green valley and lay the sod over(A) me
for I'm a young cowboy and I know I've done wrong.

VERSE FOUR

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

CHORUS REPEAT

 DADA
Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the pipe lowly
 DADA
 Play the death march..as you carry me along
 DAD
Take me to the valley there lay the sod over(A) me
 DADAD
I�m a young cowboy and know I�ve done wrong
