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 oíre me
D            A         D     A        D 
Iím a young cowboy and know Iíve 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 oíre me
 D           A         D    A         D
Iím a young cowboy and know Iíve done wrong

Whenever I hear this song I feel like I'm in the old western days of gunfighters

Just a thought, shouldn't it be something like D A D A Bm G D A?
