1.As I walked out in the streets of Laredo, as I
walked out in Laredo one day, I spied a young
cowboy wrapped up in white linen- Wrapped up 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 stepped by.
"Come sit down beside me and hear my sad
story. I'm shot in the chest and I know I must
die. It was once in the saddle I used to go
dashin' It was once in the saddle I used to go
gay; First to the dramhouse and then to the
cardhouse, Got shot in the chest and I'm dying
today." Chorus: Oh beat the drum slowly play
the fife lowly, play the death march as you carry
me along. Take me to the green valley there lay
the sod o'er me For I'm a young cowboy and I know
I've done wrong.

2."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, put roses to
deaden the clods as they fall. Then swing your
ropes slowly and rattle your spurs lowly, And give
a wild yell as you carry me along. Then in the
grave throw me and roll the sod o'er me, For I'm a
young cowboy and I know I've done wrong. Go bring
me some water, a cup of cold water To cool my
parched lips.", the cowboy then said. Before
I returned his soul had departed and gone to the
roundup- the cowpoke was dead. Ending Chorus: We
beat the drum slowly, we play the fife lowly. We
bitterly weep as we carry him along; We take him
to the green valley there lay the sod o'er him-
Just a young cowboy that surely done wrong.
