[Intro]


C#m...G#...C#m

        E                                          C#m
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
        E                                                 C#m
Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say
        A                                E
No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip
                                           C#m
For the stranger there amongst them had a big iron on his hip
 A               E
Big iron on his hip

        E                                          C#m
It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
         E                                             C#m
He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around
         A                                 E
He's an outlaw loose and running came the whisper from each lip
                                            C#m
And he's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip
 A               E
big iron on his hip

         E                                               C#m
In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
      E                                                C#m
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
        A                             E
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty-four
                                        C#m
And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more
 A                E
One and nineteen more

         E                                               C#m
Now the stranger started talking, made it plain to folks around
        E                                      C#m
Was an Arizona ranger, wouldn't be too long in town
         A                           E
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
                                     C#m
And he said it didn't matter, he was after Texas Red
 A           E
After Texas Red

         E                                          C#m
Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Texas Red
         E                                              C#m
But the outlaw didn't worry, men that tried before were dead
        A                            E
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               E
Big iron on his hip

     E                                                 C#m
The morning passed so quickly, it was time for them to meet
        E                                              C#m
It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street
            A                                 E
Folks were watching from their windows, every body held their breath
                                    C#m
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
 A                 E
About to meet his death

           E
There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their
 C#m
play
         E                                                C#m
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
       A                                  E
Texas Red had not cleared leather for a bullet fairly ripped
                                         C#m
And the rangers aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip
 A               E
Big iron on his hip

        E                                           C#m
It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round
       E                                             C#m
There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
       A                                E
Oh he might have gone 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               E
Big iron on his hip
     C#m
Big iron, Big iron
         E                                  C#m
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
 A               E
Big iron on his hip

Good tab. Play around a bit with the C#m in two voicings and it sounds even better.
