The Streets Of Laredo Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

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 

All wrapped 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 proudly stepped by 

Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story 

I'm shot in the breast and I know I must die 


It was once in the saddle, I used to go ridin' 

Once in the saddle, I used to go gay 

First lead to drinkin' and then to card playing 

I'm shot in the breast and I'm dying today 


Let six jolly cowboys come carry my coffin 

Let six pretty gals come to carry my pall 

Throw bunches of roses all over my coffin 

Throw roses to deaden the clods as they fall 


Oh, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly 

And play the dead march as you carry me along 

Take me to the green valley and lay the earth o'er me 

For I'm a poor cowboy and I know I've done wrong 


We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly 

And bitterly wept as we carried him along 

For we all loved our comrade so brave, young and handsome 

We all loved our comrade although he done wrong
