Streets Of Laredo

By: Marty Robbins

Recorded in "F"

CAPO: 3rd Fret

INTRO: PLAY LINE BELOW INSTRUMENTALLY

D A D A D

As I walked out in Lar-edo one day.

VERSE ONE

D A D A

As I walked out in the streets of Lar-edo,

D A D A

as I walked out in Lar-edo one day.

D A D A

I spied a young cowboy wrapped all in white linen.

D A D A D

Wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.

CHORUS

D A D A

Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the pipe lowly

D A D A

Sing the dead march..as you carry me along

D A D A

Take me to the valley there lay the sod o’re me

D A D A D

I’m a young cowboy and know I’ve done wrong

.

VERSE TWO

D A D A

I see by your outfit..that you are a cowboy.

D A D A

These words he did say as I boldly walked by

D A D A

Come sit down be-side me and hear my sad story

D A D A D

Got shot in the breast and I know I must die.

VERSE THREE

D A D A

Go fetch me some water...a cool cup of water

D A D A

To cool my parched lips then the poor cowboy said

D A D A

before I re-turned his sprit had left him

D A D A D

had gone to his maker, the cowboy was dead.

CHORUS REPEAT

D A D A

Oh beat the drums slowly..and play the pipe lowly

D A D A

Sing the dead march..as you carry me along

D A D A

Take me to the valley there lay the sod o’re me

D A D A D

I’m a young cowboy and know I’ve done wrong
