BIG IRON

Am...Em...Am

|C |Am

To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day

|C |Am

Hardly spoke to folks around him didn't have too much to say

|F |C

No one dared to ask his business no one dared to make a slip

|Am

for the stranger there amongst them had a big iron on his hip

|F |C

Big iron on his hip

|C |Am

It was early in the morning when he rode into the town

|C |Am

He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around

|F |C

He's an outlaw loose and running came the whisper from each lip

|Am

And he's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip

|F |C

big iron on his hip

|C |Am

In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red

|C |Am

Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead

|F |C

He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty four

|Am

And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more

|F |C

One and nineteen more

|C |Am

Now the stranger started talking made it plain to folks around

|C |Am

Was an Arizona ranger wouldn't be too long in town

|F |C

He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead

|Am

And he said it didn't matter he was after Texas Red

|F |C

After Texas Red

|C |Am

Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Texas Red

|C |Am

But the outlaw didn't worry men that tried before were dead

|F |C

Twenty men had tried to take twenty men had made a slip

|Am

Twenty one would be the ranger with the big iron on his hip

|F |C

Big iron on his hip

|C |Am

The morning passed so quickly it was time for them to meet

|C |Am

It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street

|F |C

Folks were watching from their windows every-body held their breath

|Am

They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death

|F |C

About to meet his death

|C

There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their

|Am

play

|C |Am

And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about to-day

|F |C

Texas Red had not cleared leather when a bullet fairly ripped

|Am

And the rangers aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip

|F |C

Big iron on his hip

|C |Am

It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round

|C |Am

There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground

|F |C

Oh he might have gone on living but he made one fatal slip

|Am

When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip

|F |C

Big iron on his hip

Big iron Big iron

|C |Am

When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
