The Streets of Laredo  Marty Robbins

Intro:
[C] [F] [C] [C] [C]  
As [C]I walked [G7]out in the s[C]treets of La[G7]redo
As [C]I walked [F]out in La[C]redo one [G7]day
I [C]spied a young [G7]cowboy, wrapped [C]all in white [G7]linen
[C]Wrapped in white [F]linen, as [G7]cold as the [C]clay
Oh, [C]beat the drum [G7]slowly and [C]play the fife [G7]lowly
[C]Sing the Death [F]March as you [C]carry me a[G7]long
Take [C]me to the [G7]valley, there [C]lay the sod [G7]o'er me
[C]I'm a young [F]cowboy and [G7]know I've done [C]wrong
I [C]see by your [G7]outfit that [C]you are a [G7]cowboy
These [C]words he did [F]say as I [C]boldly walked [G7]by
Come [C]sit down be[G7]side me and [C]hear my sad [G7]story
Got [C]shot in the [F]breast and I [G7]know I must [C]die
Go [C]fetch me some [G7]water a [C]cool cup of [G7]water
To [C]cool my parched [F]lips then the [C]poor cowboy [G7]said
Be[C]fore I re[G7]turned his [C]spirit had [G7]left him
Had [C]gone to his [F]maker the [G7]cowboy was [C]dead
Oh, b[C]eat the drum [G7]slowly and [C]play the fife [G7]lowly
[C]Sing the Death [F]March as you [C]carry me a[G7]long
Take [C]me to the [G7]valley, there [C]lay the sod [G7]o'er me
[C]I'm a young [F]cowboy and [G7]know I've done [C]wrong
