    Lyrics

    Who's gonna give a job to old slim carter,
    Who's gonna give a man a place to say.
    Who do you know that needs an old tired out rodeo man
    Who do you know nowadays needs a gun hand
    Who needs a gunhand

    I heard he was born somewhere in south dakota
    His mama ran off with an indian agent
    They say they hung his daddy for selling bad whiskey to the balckfeet
    So at ten years old, he hit the road, and kept on moving

    Who's gonna give a job to old slim carter
    Who's gonna give a man a place to say
    Who do you know that needs an old tired out rodeo man
    Who do you know nowadays needs a gun hand
    Who needs a gunhand

    He finally ended up in hollywood california
    He hocked the gold buckle that he worked so hard for
    Landed a job as a stuntman for america's favorite cowboy
    Until the stage had a wreck, he broke his neck
    And it was all over

    Who's gonna give a job to old slim carter
    Who's gonna give a man a place to say
    Who do you know that needs an old tired out rodeo man
    Who do you know nowadays needs a gun hand
    Who needs a gunhand
    Who needs a gunhand
    Who needs a gunhand?
