streets of laredo2  Johnny Cash



[A]As I walked [E]out on the [A]streets of La[E]redo
As [A]I walked [D]out On La[B7]redo one [E]day
I s[A]pied a young [E]cowboy all [A]wrapped in white [E]linen,
[A]Wrapped in white [D]linen as [E7]cold as the [A]clay
"I [A]can see by your out[E]fit that [A]you are a [E]cowboy"
These [A]words he did [E]say as I [B7]boldly walked [E]by
"[A]Come sit down be[E]side me and [A]hear my sad [E]story
I'm [A]shot in the [D]breast and [E7]I know I must [A]die"
"[A]It was once in the sad[E]dle, I [A]used to go [E]dashing
[A]Once in the [E]saddle, I [B7]used to go [E]gay
[A]First to the [E]cardhouse, and [A]then down to [E]Rosie's
But I'm [A]shot in the [D]breast and I'm [E7]dyin to[A]day.
"[A]Get six jolly [E]cowboys to [A]carry my [E]coffin,
[A]Six dance all [E]maidens to [B7]bear up my [E]pall.
Throw [A]bunches of [E]roses all [A]over my [E]coffin;
[A]Roses to [D]deaden the [E7]clods as they [A]fall.
Then [A]beat the drum slowly, [D]play the fife lowly,
[A]Play the dead march as you [B7]carry me a[E]long.
Take me [A]to the green valley, [D]lay the sod o'er me;
[A]I'm a young cowboy, and I [E]know I've done [A]wrong.
"Then [A]go write a [E]letter to [A]my gray-haired[E] mother,
And [A]tell her the [D]cowboy that she [A]loved is [E7]gone.
But [A]please not one [E]word of the [A]man who had [E]killed me,
Don't [A]mention his [D]name, and his [E7]name will pass [A]on."
When [A]thus he had [E]spoken, the [A]hot sun was [E]setting.
The [A]streets of [E]Laredo grew [B7]cold as the [E]clay.
We [A]took the young [E]cowboy down [A]to the green [E]valley,
And [A]there stands his [D]marker we [E7]made to this [A]day.
"We [A]beat the drum slowly, [D]played the fife lowly
[A]Played the dead march as we [B7]carried him a[E]long
Down [A]in the green valley, [D]laid the sod o'er him
He [A]was a young cowboy, and he [E]said he'd done [A]wrong."
