Streets of Laredo" (Laws B01, Roud 23650), also known as the "Cowboy's Lament", is a famous American cowboy ballad in which a dying cowboy tells his story to another cowboy. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time. Derived from the traditional folk song "The Unfortunate Rake", the song has become a folk music standard, and as such has been performed, recorded and adapted numerous times, with many variations
Lyrics to "Cowboy's Lament" song by Burl Ives: As I walked out in the streets of Laredo As I walked out in Laredo one day I spied a young cowboy a. .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 I'm shot in the breast and I know I must die. It was once in the saddle I used to go dashing Once in the saddle I used to go gay First down to Rosie's and then to the card house Got shot in the breast and I'm dying today. Get sixteen gamblers to carry my coffin Get six jolly cowboys to sing me a song Take me to the graveyard and lay the sod o'er me For I'm a young cowboy and I know I've done wrong

He was only a lavender cowboy The hairs on his chest they were two He wanted to follow the heroes And do as the he men do. Red, green, and many colored hair tonics He rubbed on his chest day and night When he looked in the mirror next morning No new hairs grew in sight. He battled for Red Nellie's honor He cleaned out a hold-up's nest He died with two six-guns a-smokin' But only two hairs on his chest. Lavender Cowboy" Track Info.
