GUNSLINGER (Lyrics: Bud Freeman / Music: Leon Pober) Katie Lee - 1957 The Limeliters - 1961 Gunslinger, Gunslinger, Gunslinger, Gunslinger! Gunslinger, Gunslinger, where did you go wrong When you were a child did the Cheyenne and Sioux Refuse to play nicely with you Did you always feel you didn't belong Gunslinger You killed one hundred and thirty men, old buddy And now you wanta settle down. But other gunslingers are a-gunnin' for you And a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do Old buddy Gunslinger, Gunslinger, why you act so strange When you were a child were you forced to compete With brothers that you never could beat Did you come from a broken "Home on the Range" Old buddy Don't wear your guns in town today, old buddy Last night you cried out "Mummy, Dear" You got a recurrent dream in your craw And that dream of your Maw will inhibit your draw Old buddy, old buddy, old buddy Yippee-i-aye, yippee-i-oh Gunslinger gunslinger, please take my advice You know in your mind that you're plumb insecure And that killing a man is real immature It is just an attention-getting device Gunslinger There you lie dead in the dust, old buddy, old buddy And now your myth begins Out in the West the folks all believe You faced and killed the toughest hombres of your day But time has exposed your feet of clay Recent research has clearly shown That ninety-three-point-six percent of the gunmen you killed Were simply accident prone Gunslinger!
