"Shot me another, god damn it won't grow old"

I always thought it was "he" won't grow old. The "another" cowboy he shot will not grow old.
I also at times thought that "Denver man" was "gamblin man", I'm as honest as a gambling man can be.
And I think that the inferences in the song lead to the assumption that the uncle was shot in the back and left on the side of the road.
That is the beauty of song writing, you say enough to paint a picture, but leave enough to listeners imagination.
Song I believe was written by a member of the Mama's and Papa's. Fred
