Lyrics Streets of Laredo

As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
As I walked out in
Laredo one day
I spied a poor cowboy wrapped up in white linen
Wrapped up in white linen as cold as the clay
I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy
These words he did say as I boldly stepped by
Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story
I was shot in the breast and I know I must die
Oh beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
Play the dead march as you carry me along
Take me to the green valley
There lay the sod over me for I'm a young cowboy
I know I've done wrong
Oh fetch me a cup
A cup of cold water to cool my parched lips the poor cowboy said
Before I returned the spirit had left him and gone to its Maker
The cowboy was dead
We beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
And bitterly wept as we bore him along
For we all loved our comrade
So brave young and handsome
We all loved our comrade although he done wrong
