Streets of Laredo  Johnny Cash

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