As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
As I walked out in Laredo one day
I spied a poor cowboy all wrapped 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 boldly walked by
Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story
Got shot in the breast and I know I must die

It was once in the saddle I used to go dashing,
‘Twas once in the saddle I used to go gay.
First down to Rosie’s, and then to the card house,
Got shot in the chest, and I’m dying today.

Oh beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
Sing the death march as you carry me along
Take me to the valley then lay the sod o’er me
I’m a young cowboy and I know I’ve done wrong

Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin,
Get six pretty maidens to bear up my pall.
Put bunches of roses all over my coffin,
Roses to deaden the clods as they fall.

Go fetch me some water a cool cup of water
To cool my parched lips then the poor cowboy said
Before I returned his spirit had left him
Had gone to his Maker the cowboy was dead

We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly
And bitterly wept as we bore him along
For we loved our comrade so brave, young and handsome
We all loved our comrade although he’d done wrong
