Letter to laredo Lyrics

Letter to laredo by Ely Joe  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Letter to laredo As I was rolling across the Mississippi
I stopped there and I cried
No use for a man to keep a mighty river
All dammed up inside

I jumped bail from the Sweetwater County
Now I'm on the run
On my head is a five number bounty
For a crime I never done

Take this letter to Laredo
To the one I love
Tell her to stay low
Beneath the stars above
Her love is my only alibi
It's for her love I lied
Yeah, yeah, yeah


"Why did Frankie have to pull that trigger?
Why did you have to hide?
The sheriff still thinks I was standing with her
It's for your love I lied."

"Love will make a free man a prisioner
Will make an honest man lie
Love can be tough, love can be tender
It's my only alibi"

Take this Letter to Laredo
To the one I love
Tell her to stay low
Beneath the stars above
Her love is my only alibi
It's for her love I lied...
Yeah, yeah, yeah...
