Sweet Laredo Lou

(Music: Bob Nolan)

(Words: E. Morrisey)

 

Sing along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

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.)

Extraordinary 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.
