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