Bb Ebm Verse: Gb Ebm To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day Gb Ebm Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say B Gb No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip Ebm For the stranger there amongst them had a big iron on his hip B Gb Big iron on his hip Gb Ebm It was early in the morning when he rode into the town Gb Ebm He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around B Gb He's an outlaw loose and running came the whisper from each lip Ebm And he's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip B Gb big iron on his hip Gb Ebm In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red Gb Ebm Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead B Gb He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty-four Ebm And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more B Gb One and nineteen more Gb Ebm Now the stranger started talking, made it plain to folks around Gb Ebm Was an Arizona ranger, wouldn't be too long in town B Gb He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead Ebm And he said it didn't matter, he was after Texas Red B Gb After Texas Red Gb Ebm Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Texas Red Gb Ebm But the outlaw didn't worry, men that tried before were dead B Gb Twenty men had tried to take him, twenty men had made a slip Ebm Twenty-one would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip B Gb Big iron on his hip Gb Ebm The morning passed so quickly, it was time for them to meet Gb Ebm It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street B Gb Folks were watching from their windows, every body held their breath Ebm They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death B Gb About to meet his death Gb Ebm There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their play Gb Ebm And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today B Gb Texas Red had not cleared leather for a bullet fairly ripped Ebm And the rangers aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip B Gb Big iron on his hip Gb Ebm It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round Gb Ebm There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground B Gb Oh he might have gone on living but he made one fatal slip Ebm When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip B Gb Big iron on his hip Ebm Gb Big iron, Big iron Gb Ebm When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip B Gb Big iron on his hip
