As I walked out in the streets of Laredo
As I walked out in Laredo one day
I spied a young cowboy dressed in white linen
Dressed in white linen and cold as the clay
I can see by your outfit that you are a cowboy
You can see by my outfit I'm a cowboy, too
You can see by our outfits that we are both cowboys
Get yourself an outfit and be a cowboy, too!
