[Verse 1]
   C        G          C           G7
As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
   C        F        C        G7
As I walked out in Laredo one day
  C             G              C            G7
I spied a young cowboy, wrapped all in white linen
C                F         G7          C
Wrapped in white linen, as cold as the day
[Verse 2]
  C           G          C         G7
I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy
      C            F        C             G7
These words he did say as I boldly walked by
     C          G          C           G7
Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story
    C           F            G7          C
I'm shot in the breast, and I know I must die
[Verse 3]
  C             G         C             G7
It was once in the saddle; I used to go dashing.
C            F        C         G7
Once in the saddle, I used to go gay.
     C         G            C           G7
First to the card house and then down to Rosie's
C            F              G7          C
But I'm shot in the breast, and I'm dying today.
[Verse 4]
   C           G        C         G7
Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin.
   C               F           C
Six dance-hall maidens to bear up my pall.
C             G           C       G7
Throw bunches of Roses all over my coffin.
      C         F          G7       C
Roses to deaden the clods as they fall.
[Verse 5]
     C              G         C             G7
Then, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
C              F            C        G7
Sing the Death March as you carry me along
     C         G            C           G7
Take me to the green valley; there lay the sod o'er me
C           F          G7             C
I'm a young cowboy and know I've done wrong
[Verse 6]
     C          G        C              G7
Then go write a letter to my grey-haired mother,
  C            F           C            G7
An tell her the cowboy that she loved has gone.
    C              G            C         G7
But please not one word of the man who has killed me.
C             F           G7            C
Don't mention his name, so his name will pass on.
[Verse 7]
     C           G          C           G7
When thus he had spoken, the hot sun was setting.
    C             F        G           G7
The streets of Laredo grew cold as the clay.
       C                       C            G7
We took the young cowboy down to the green valley.
         C               F         G7          C
And there stands his marker, as we carved that day.
[Verse 8]
   C             G         C          G7
We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly,
C          F             C          G7
Played the dead march as we carried him along.
C       G           C                G7
Down in the green valley, we laid the sod o'er him
C        F            G7            C            C
He was a young cowboy, and he said he done wrong.
