You've always been a friend of mine
And that's the way we'll be, 'til the day I die
Yeah, it's good to know you're on my side

'Cause now you know she's leavin' me
And I need your help to make her see
So turn on your charm and let it shine

'Cause you've always been the one who could make her stay around
So when she gets to the city limits sign
Don't let me down

Oh-whoa Laredo
Don't let her go
Just take her by the heart
And let the wheels turn slow
Whoa-oh Laredo
You're my only hope
So get her back to the day we met
'Cause that's as far as she needs to get
Oh, but please don't let her go
Oh Laredo

Make her think 'bout the moonlit walks
And the long long talks by the waters edge
With her feet hangin' off the Canyon Creek Bridge

And bring to mind the first kiss we shared
At the Old Town Square when she drives down there
'Cause that's the day she said she could never forget

And keep the nights by the candlelight
As an ace in the hole
'Cause those are nights of passion
That I know will bring her home

Oh-whoa Laredo
Don't let her go
Just take her by the heart
And let the wheels turn slow
Whoa-oh Laredo,
You're my only hope
So get her back to the day we met
'Cause that's as far as she needs to get
Oh, but please don't let her go
Oh Laredo!

Whoa-oh Laredo
Don't let her go
Take her by the heart
And let the wheels turn slow
Whoa-oh Laredo
You're my only hope
So get her back to the day we met
'Cause that's as far as she needs to get
Oh, but please don't let her go
Oh Laredo!

Don't let her go!
You're my only hope!
Whoa Laredo, oh

    General CommentDoes it make sense that he's singing about his truck? Laredo is a type of Ford F-150 and he mentions the 'wheels' and how he's a good friend and that he'll stop her before she gets to the city limits

    General CommentLaredo is also a city and the wheels are an analagy for the girls mind. the city is supposed to remind her of all the good times that they've had and make her stay around
    love this song

    General CommentHey angus youre the dumbass here. its Laredo, not Loredo...dumbass.

    Anyways. He's talking about the city and a girl leaving the city. He feels that the city is "his only hope" of keeping the girl in town. He talks about places and things she loves in the city, because he knows that he cant make her stay so maybe the city can.

    General Commentthe song is about the city Laredo, he's had a lot of good times there with his girl and he knows that the memories the city holds might be the only way to make her stay with him, so it's like he's telling the city to help him keep his girl
