K:G As [G]I walked [D]out in the [G]streets of La-[D]redo, As [G]I walked [C]out in La-[G]redo one [D]day, I [G]spied a dear [D]cowboy wrapped [G]up in white [D]linen, Wrapped [G]up in white [C]linen as [D]cold as the [G]clay. "I [G]see by your [D]outfit that [G]you are a [D]cowboy" These [G]words he did [C]say as I [G]boldly stepped [D]by. "Come [G]sit down be-[D]side me and [G]hear my sad [D]story; I am [G]shot in the [C]breast and I [D]know I must [G]die. "It was [G]once in the [D]saddle I [G]used to go [D]dashing, It was [G]once in the [C]saddle I [G]used to go [D]gay; [G]First to the [D]dram-house and [G]then to the [D]card-house; Got [G]shot in the [C]breast and I'm [D]dying to-[G]day. "Oh, [G]beat the drum [D]slowly and [G]play the fife [D]lowly, [G]Play the dead [C]march as you [G]carry me a-[D]long; Take me [G]to the green [D]valley, there [G]lay the sod [D]o'er me, For [G]I'm a young [C]cowboy and I [D]know I've done [G]wrong. "Get [G]six jolly [D]cowboys to [G]carry my [D]coffin; Get [G]six pretty [C]maidens to [G]bear up my [D]pall. Put [G]bunches of [D]roses all [G]over my [D]coffin, Put [G]roses to [C]deaden the [D]sods as they [G]fall. "Then [G]swing your rope [D]slowly and [G]tattle your spurs [D]lowly, And [G]give a wild [C]whoop as you [G]carry me a-[D]long; And [G]in the grave [D]throw me and [G]roll the sod [D]o'er me For [G]I'm a young [C]cowboy and I [D]know I've done [G]wrong. "Go [G]bring me a [D]cup, a [G]cup of cold [D]water, To [G]cool my parched [C]lips," the [G]cowboy then [D]said; Be-[G]fore I re-[D]turned his [G]soul had de-[D]parted, And [G]gone to the [C]round-up, the [D]cowboy was [G]dead. We [G]beat the drum [D]slowly and [G]played the fife [D]lowly, And [G]bitterly [C]wept as we [G]bore him a-[D]long; For we [G]all loved our[D] comrade, so [G]brave, young, and [D]handsome, We [G]all loved our [C]comrade al-[D]though he'd done [G]wrong.
