       |E                                         |C#m
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day

       |A                               |E
No one dared to ask his business no one dared to make a slip
                                          |C#m

        |E                                            |C#m

        |E                                              |C#m
In this town there lived an outlaw by the name of Texas Red
     |E                                               |C#m
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
       |A                            |E
He was vicious and a killer though a youth of twenty four
                                       |C#m
And the notches on his pistol numbered one an nineteen more

One and nineteen more


        |E                                              |C#m
Now the stranger started talking made it plain to folks around
       |E                                     |C#m
Was an Arizona ranger wouldn't be too long in town
        |A                          |E
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
                                    |C#m
And he said it didn't matter he was after Texas Red

        |E                                         |C#m

    |E                                                |C#m
The morning passed so quickly it was time for them to meet
       |E                                             |C#m
It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street
           |A                                |E
Folks were watching from their windows every-body held their breath
                                   |C#m
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
|A                |E
About to meet his death


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

play
        |E                                               |C#m
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about to-day
      |A                                 |E
Texas Red had not cleared leather when a bullet fairly ripped
                                        |C#m
And the rangers aim was deadly with the big iron on his hip

      |E                                            |C#m
There before them lay the body of the outlaw on the ground
      |A                               |E
Oh he might have gone on living but he made one fatal slip
                                           |C#m
When he tried to match the ranger with the big iron on his hip
