Lyrics:
To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day
Hardly spoke to folks around him 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 them had a big iron on his hip
Big iron on his hip

It was early in the morning when he rode into the town
He came riding from the south side slowly lookin' all around
He's an outlaw loose and running came the whisper from each lip
And 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 an nineteen more
One and nineteen more

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

Wasn't long before the 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 morning passed so quickly it was time for them to meet
It was twenty past eleven when they walked out in the street
Folks were watching from the 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 fore 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 went on living 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

Patrolling the Mojave almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter.

In the Wastes of the Mojave rode a stranger one fine day Spoke to all the folks around him; he had lots of things to say with two bullets in the brain and armed with his pip the stranger was a looking for that missing platinum chip Missing platinum chip It was early in the morning when he rode into Freeside Local Thugs there tried to kill him, but all those men then died passed the robots by the gate, he made his way onto the Strip for the stranger was a looking for a missing platinum chip Missing platinum chip In New Vegas lived the Chairman, former tribals in the Tops Amongst them there was Benny, who was calling all the shots It was he who shot stranger, left him buried in the dirt the stranger feeling vengeful, was about to make him hurt about to make him hurt The stranger chased down Benny, but the outlaw got away In his stead, the robot Yesman, was about to change the day He told the Stranger if he helps him, he can rule over the Strip but first please track down Benny and that missing platinum chip Missing platinum chip Wasn't long before the Stranger got involved with all out war The NCR they held the dam but the bull was by their door Caesars legion caught hold of Benny, and with the chip now in their hands the stranger started thinking about their potential plan their potential plan On the one hand there was Caesar, and his mighty legionaries As Organized and they were deadly, they were killers of the Bear but their cruelty and their malice made them questionable at best Would the Stranger side with Caesar and bring terror to the west terror to the west The folks of California, known as the NCR from the town of Shady Sands, their power has come far they claim to bring democracy for the lands that they possess but their corruption and dirty dealings created civil unrest created civil unrest Finally a third option and leave Vegas all alone He could drive out the warring armies and claim Vegas as his own with Yesman, the Stranger could solely rule the lands or redistribute the power to Mr House's hands Mr House's hands The stranger made theirs choices and the Mojave it did change some decisions were made with reason, but others were really strange but what became of the stranger, and their vault tec pip well we know they found a way, to get that platinum chip they found the platinum chip

Betcha if the Fallout games weren't to exist, songs like this wouldn't even be known by today's generations, lol.

As I was approaching New Vegas on foot with my lever-action rifle, a freshly-brain transplated Rex, and a trail of Cazadors behind me, and this song, I truly felt like a badass. I love Fallout, and this song. Thank you, Bethesda.

Nothing like spending a sunny day jamming this song while hunting deathclaws west of New Vegas.

This, ladies and gents, is TRUE country music. The type that tells a story. Not some song about how "he/she broke up with me and I`m sad" crap that goes on today.
