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