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