If you, the teacher, can play an accompaniment using the chords shown in the music, you will have easy piano duet sheet music.

Here is The Streets of Laredo with melody and chords, using a mostly-repeated pattern of small chords in the left hand.

This arrangement needs the right hand to do a bit of crossing over and finger replacement, which I have thoughtfully marked for you!  Other than those few spots, the fingering falls right into place.

As for the left hand chords, much of it is one-hand-at-a-time motion, which makes it easier to execute for level 2 to 3 piano students.

Now for a broken chord version, in the key of F:

The trickiest part of this arrangement comes at the end of line 3, when the bass line descends into a G minor chord inversion.  This needs some attention if your student is not familiar with this construction.  In fact, it's a good idea to have your piano student identify and mark all the chord names.

Now, below is a video that has NOTHING to do with Streets of Laredo - except that I love it and my dad used to sing it to us when I was a little girl, and it is so fabulously sung by Vaughn Monroe.  Here it is, GHOSTRIDERS in the Sky:
