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