Streets Of Laredo Ukulele Chords

[D]As I walked [A7]out in the [D]streets of La[A7]redo
As [D]I walked [G]out in La[D]redo one [A7]day
I [D]spied a poor [A7]cowboy all [D]wrapped in white [A7]linen
All [D]wrapped in white [G]linen as [D]cold [A7]as the [D]clay

I see by your [A7]outfit that [D]you are a [A7]cowboy
[D]These words he did [G]say as I [D]boldly walked [A7]by
[D]Come sit down be[A7]side me and [D]hear my sad [A7]story
Got [D]shot in the [G]breast and [D]I know [A7]I must [D]die

It was once in the [A7]saddle I [D]used to go [A7]dashing,
[D]‘Twas once in the [G]saddle I [D]used to go [A7]gay.
[D]First down to [A7]Rosie’s, and [D]then to the [A7]card house,
Got [D]shot in the [G]chest, and [D]I’m dying to[A7]day.

Oh beat the [A7]drum slowly and [D]play the fife [A7]lowly
[D]Sing the death [G]march as you [D]carry me [A7]along
[D]Take me to the [A7]valley then [D]lay the sod o’er [A7]me
I’m [D]a young [G]cowboy and [A7]I know [D]I’ve [A7]done [D]wrong

Get six jolly [A7]cowboys to [D]carry my [A7]coffin,
[D]Get six pretty [G]maidens to [D]bear up my [A7]pall.
[D]Put bunches of [A7]roses all [D]over my [A7]coffin,
[D]Roses to [G]deaden the [A7]clods as they [D]fall.

Go fetch me some [A7]water a [D]cool cup of [A7]water
To [D]cool my parched [G]lips then the [D]poor cowboy [A7]said
[D]Before I re[A7]turned his [D]spirit had [A7]left him
Had [D]gone to his [G]Maker the [D]cowboy [A7]was [D]dead

We beat the [A7]drum slowly and [D]played the fife [A7]lowly
[D]And bitterly [G]wept as we [D]bore him [A7]along
[D]For we loved [A7]our comrade [D]so brave, young and hand[A7]some
We [D]all loved our comrade [G]although [D]he’d [A7]done [D]wrong
