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 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.
