Big Iron
Written and recorded by Marty Robbins

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

Am
It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
C Am
He came riding from the south side slowly looking 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

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

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

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

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 everybody held their breath
Am
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
F C
About to meet his death

Am
There was forty feet between them when they stopped to make their play
C Am
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
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

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

F C
Big iron Big iron
Am
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
F C
Big iron on his hip
