Chanson traditionnelle du Texas connue sous deux titres : "The Cowboy's Lament" ou, plus fréquemment "The Streets of Laredo".
As I walked out on the streets of Laredo,
As I walked out in Laredo one day,
I spied a young cowboy all wrapped in white linen,
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 stepped by,
"Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story,
I was shot in the breast and I know I must die."
"Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin,
Get six pretty maidens to sing me a love song,
Take me to the graveyard and lay the sod o'er me
For I'm a poor cowboy and I know I've done wrong."
"It was once in the saddle I used to go dashing
Once in the saddle I used to go gay,
First down to the dram-house and then to the card house
Got shot in the breast, I am dying to day."
We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly,
And bitterly wept as we bore him along,
For we all loved our comrade, so brave, young and handsome,
We all loved our comrade although he'd done wrong.
