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