C#m E7 A


Intro: C#m

       E7                       C#m
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
       E7                                                 C#m
Hardly spoke to folks around him, didnʼt have too much to say
       A                                 E7
No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip
                                        C#m
For the stranger there among them had a big iron on his hip
A               E7
Big iron on his hip
 
       E7                           C#m
It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
        E7                                             C#m
He came riding from the south side slowly lookinʼ all around
         A                                   E7
«Heʼs an outlaw loose and running», came the whisper from each lip
                                           C#m
And heʼs here to do some business with the big iron on his hip
A               E7
big iron on his hip
 
        E7                                C#m
In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
     E7                                               C#m
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
       A                             E7
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty-four
                                       C#m
And the notches on his pistol numbered one and nineteen more
A                E7
One and nineteen more
 
        E7                                C#m
Now the stranger started talking, made it plain to folks around
       E7                                      C#m
Was an Arizona ranger, wouldnʼt be too long in town
        A                           E7
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
                                     C#m
And he said it didnʼt matter, he was after Texas Red
A           E7
After Texas Red
 
       E7                          C#m
Wasnʼt long before the story was relayed to Texas Red
        E7                                              C#m
But the outlaw didnʼt worry, men that tried before were dead
       A                                 E7
Twenty men had tried to take him, twenty men had made a slip
                                        C#m
Twenty-one would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip
A               E7
Big iron on his hip
 
    E7                                C#m
The morning passed so quickly, it was time for them to meet
       E7                                             C#m
It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street
           A                                 E7
Folks were watching from their windows, everybody held their breath
                                   C#m
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
A                 E7
About to meet his death
 
          E7                                C#m
There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their play
        E7                                              C#m
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
      A                                 E7
Texas Red had not cleared leather for a bullet fairly ripped
                                         C#m
And the rangerʼs aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip
A               E7
Big iron on his hip
 
       E7                       C#m
It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round
      E7                                            C#m
There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
      A                                E7
Oh he might have went on living but he made one fatal slip
                                           C#m
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
A               E7
Big iron on his hip

Outro:
        C#m       E7
    Big iron, big iron
            E7                                 C#m
    When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
    A               E7 C#m
    Big iron on his hip
