Streets Of Laredo

Once you learn to play Streets of Laredo, one of the most popular traditional western songs ever written, you will want to play it every time you pick up your guitar; the tune gets into your head and it just keeps on playing. We present Streets of Laredo in the key of E. The chord structure is as basic and simple as it can be. Besides the E chord, all you need are B7, F#, A, and C#m7. Most of the lyrics will fall on the E, and the B7 chords, the “one” and the “five” chords. These chords will serve for the verses and for the chorus; there’s really nothing else to learn. The time signature is three-quarter time, three beats to the measure and each quarter note gets one beat.
