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