    Lyrics

    Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
    For I'm a young cowboy I know I've done wrong
    As I walked out in the streets of Laredo as I walked out in Laredo one day
    I spied a poor cowboy 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
    Got shot in the breast and I know I must die
    Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
    Play the dead march as you carry me along
    Take me to the graveyard and throw the sod o'er me
    For I'm a young cowboy I know I've done wrong
    Twas once in the saddle I used to go dashing
    Twas once in the saddle I used to go gay
    First got to drinking then two card playing
    Got shot in the breast and I'm dying today
    Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly
    For I'm a young cowboy I know I've done wrong
