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:
