How To Play

INTRO
Am7                                        G
As I walked out, in the streets of Laredo
 
 
VERSE
G           C           Em          D
As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
Em         C       G          D
As I walked out in Laredo one day
  G            C              Em            D
I spied a poor cowboy wrapped up in white linen
Em               C         G            Am7
Wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay
Am7                                      G
As I walked out, in the streets of Laredo
 
 
VERSE
G           C          Em           D
Sit down beside me and hear my sad story
Em        C          G              D
Mortally wounded he clutched at his heart
G              C              Em          D
Breathless and pale still his eyes told a tale
   Em         C            G          Am7
Of love for a world he was loathe to depart
Am7                                        G
As I walked out, in the streets of Laredo
 
 
CHORUS
    G             D          Am             Em
Not long for this world, not long for this world
C         G          Am        Em
Going the way of the beautiful roses
C         G          Am      G
Standing in line and waving goodbye
    G             D          Am             Em
Not long for this world, not long for this world
C         G          Am        Em
Going the way of all valiant soldiers
G          D        Am      Em
Standing in line and waving goodbye
G          D        Am      Em
Not long for this world, not long for this world
C          G        Am      Em
Going the way of the beautiful roses
C          G        Am      G
Standing in line and waving goodbye
 
Am7                                       G
As I walked out, in the streets of Laredo

VERSE
G           C           Em          D
As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
Em         C       G          D
As I walked out in Laredo one day
  G            C              Em            D
I spied a poor cowboy wrapped up in white linen
Em               C         G            Am7
Wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay
 
 
OUTRO

As I walked out, in the streets of Laredo
Am7                                      G
As I walked out...
Am7
Scatter roses over my coffin,
Am7
Scatter roses over the clay
Am7
Scatter roses over my coffin
Am7
Scatter roses over the clay
Am7
Over the clay
Am7
In the streets of Laredo
Am7
The streets of Laredo
