I need a good knife, that holds an edge right,
I need a good knife to cut out a lying tongue,
I need a good knife.

I hope that you can sell me what I need to carry on.

I need some rawhide, let's see the flesh side,
I need a rawhide thong that tightens when it dries,
I need some rawhide.

I hope that you can tell me what i need to carry on.

I need a pack mule, I'll need some camp fuel,
I need a pack mule to carry a body, maybe two,
I need a pack mule.

I hope that you can tell me what I need to carry on.

(Trapper's gonna get you, gonna track you down and let you,
Think you're gone 'til he can hit you with it, trigger fingers itchin'
He won't rush it, he'll resist; you've no idea how tough it is
To beat a trapper at his own game.)

You can run upriver,
Still hear him whisper,
"Girl come hither; beat the trapper at his own game."

(Trapper's gonna get you, gonna track you down and let you,
Think you're gone 'til he can hit you with it, trigger fingers itchin'
He won't rush it, he'll resist; you've no idea how tough it is
To beat a trapper at his own game.)

You can run upriver,
Still hear him whisper,
"Girl come hither; beat a trapper at his own game."

(Trapper's gonna get you, gonna track you down and let you,
Think you're gone 'til he can hit you with it, trigger fingers itchin'
He won't rush it, he'll resist; you've no idea how tough it is
To beat a trapper at his own game.)

You can run upriver,
Still hear him whisper,
"Girl come hither; beat a trapper at his own game."

There been a women through?
You sold a rifle to?
There been a woman through,maybe a coward too?
There been a woman through?

I hope that you can tell me what I need to carry on.
