1st fret
Capo 1st Fret / Key of C#

Intro:  C  Bb  F  Bb     C  Bb  F  Fsus4  F    C

You've always been a friend of mine
                F                    Bb          C
And that's the way we'll be 'til the day I die
                    Bb             F     Fsus4  F     C
Yeah, it's good to know you're on my side
'Cause now you know she's leaving me
       F                 Bb         C
And I need your help to make her see
                 Bb             F     Fsus4  F    G
So turn on your charm and let it shine

'Cause you've always been the one
          Am                       F
Who could make her stay around

So when she gets to the city limit sign
 G          A   D
Don't let me down


 A     G           A          D
Oh, Laredo, don't let her go
                      A                 G             A     D
Just take her by the heart and let the wheels turn slow
 A     G              A          Bm
Oh, Laredo, you're my only hope
                        A            G/B
So, get her back to the day we met
                         A                 Bm
'Cause that's as far as she needs to get
               A                  G
But, oh, but please don't let her go
A      C (D)<--on 3rd chorus
Oh, Laredo

--Repeat Intro

But, make her think about the moonlit walks
         F                      Bb            C
And the long, long talks by the water's edge
                      Bb               F       Fsus4  F    C
With her feet hangin' off the Cane Creek bridge
And bring to mind the first kiss we shared
        F                        Bb                C
At the old town square when she drives down there
                         Bb                   F     Fsus4  F    G
'Cause that's a day she said she could never forget

And keep the nights by the candlelight
     Am                F
As an ace in the hole

'Cause those are nights of passion
        G                   A
That I know will bring her home

--Repeat Chorus

--Solo-->  Bb   F    Bb    Am   F   G   A   D
--Repeat Chorus

  A     G    A             D
(Oh, Laredo) Don't let her go
  A     G           A         D
(Oh, Laredo) You're my only hope
  A     G    A        D  A  G     A    D
(Oh, Laredo) Whoa, Laredo, whoa-oh        (fades out)
