Gun Fightin Man

Album: Fear and Saturday Night (2015)
  • This is an old song that Bingham had in his back pocket for a while before finally putting it on disc. He explained to Rolling Stone: "I've always loved those old gunfighter movies, and Gunsmoke. I wanted to record that song, but I didn't want to send out the wrong message about gun violence and things like that. I believe in owning guns and everything, and I've grown up on ranches and always had a rifle in the truck, but I don't know if having an AK-47 in my house is something that I need, or that some people should need."
