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

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

 

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

For the stranger there among 'em had a big iron on his hip

Big iron on his hip

 

It was early in the mornin' when he rode into town

He came ridin' from the south side, slowly lookin' all around

 

"He's an outlaw, loose and runnin'", came a whisper from each lip

"He's here to do some business with the big iron on his hip

Big iron on his hip"

 

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

 

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

 

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

And the notches on his pistol numbered one and nineteen more

One and nineteen more

 

Now the stranger started talkin', made it plain to folks around

 

Was an Arizonia ranger, wouldn't be too long in town

 

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

 

Said it didn't matter, he was after Texas Red, after Texas Red

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

Big iron on his hip

 

The mornin' past so quickly, it was time for them to meet

 

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

 

Folks were watchin' from their windows, every body held their breath

They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death

About to meet his death

 

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

 

And the swiftness of the Ranger is still talked about today

 

Texas Red had not cleared leather for a bullet fairly ripped

And the ranger's aim was deadly, with the big iron on his hip

Big iron on his hip

 

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

 

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

 

Oh, he might have gone on livin' but he made one fatal slip

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

Big iron on his hip

 

Big iron, big iron

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

Big iron on his hip
