Big Iron-crd

Marty Robbins

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
