Sweet Laredo Lou
(Music: Bob Nolan)
(Words: E. Morrisey)
What a lovely how-dee-do!
All my roving days are through.
My heart is hooked and my dogie’s cooked
By Sweet Laredo Lou.
When the moon and she combined
To intimidate my mind,
I tell you, pard, that she threw me hard
And branded my heart, too.
I could not resist her.
(She corralled him in her arms.)
And then when I kissed her…
(…he was roped in by her charms.)
Such a love I never knew.
Found myself a dream come true.
My horse, my songs and my heart belong
To Sweet Laredo Lou.
This song was never commercially recorded.
