Collected by Hubert Charles Peterson For M.C.Parler
As I walked out in the streets of Laredo As I walked out in the streets one day,
I spied a young cowboy all wrapped in white linen,
Wrapped in white linen, and cold as the day.
Go beat the fife lowly and play the drums slowly,
And play the dead march while they carry me along,
Go carry me to the cemetery and roll the sod o'er me.
For I'm a young cowboy and I know I've done srong.
Sung by Lowell Harness Leslie, Arkansas December 21, 1962.
Reel 428, Item 18
