Big Iron Ukulele Chords

[C]To the town of Agua Fria rode a [Am]stranger one fine day
Hardly [C]spoke to folks around him didn’t have too much to [Am]say
No one [F]dared to ask his business, no one [C]dared to make a slip
For the stranger there among them had a [Am]big iron on his hip
[F]Big iron on his [C]hip

It was early in the morning when he [Am]rode into the town
He came [C]riding from the south side slowly looking all a[Am]round
He’s an [F]outlaw loose and running came the [C]whisper from each lip
And he’s here to do some business with the [Am]big iron on his hip
[F]Big iron on his [C]hip

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

Now the stranger started talking made it [Am]plain to folks around
He was an [C]Arizona ranger wouldn’t be too long in [Am]town
He came [F]here to take an outlaw back a[C]live or maybe dead
And he said it didn’t matter he was [Am]after Texas Red
[F]After Texas [C]Red

Wasn’t long before the story was relay[Am]ed to Texas Red
But the [C]outlaw didn’t worry, men that [Am]tried before were dead
Twenty [F]men had tried to take him twenty [C]men had made a slip
Twenty one would be the stranger with the [Am]big iron on his hip
[F]Big iron on his [C]hip

The morning passed so quickly, it was [Am]time for them to meet
It was [C]twenty past eleven when they walked out in the [Am]street
Folks were [F]watching from their windows, everybody held their [C]breath
They knew this handsome ranger was a[Am]bout to meet his death
Was a[F]bout to meet his [C]death

There was forty feet between them when they [Am]stopped to make their play
And the [C]swiftness of the ranger is still talked about to[Am]day
Texas [F]Red had not cleared leather when a [C]bullet fairly ripped
And the ranger’s aim was deadly with the [Am]big iron on his hip
The [F]big iron on his [C]hip

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