The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Song Author Burt F. Bacharach og Hal David Performer: Gene Pitney Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]When Liberty [Am]Valance rode to [F]town
The women[Em]folk would [Am]hide they'd [F]hide [G7]    
When Liberty [C]Valance walked a[F]round
The men would [Em]step [Am]aside
Cause the [Em]point of a [Am]gun was the [Em]only [G7]law   
That [Em]Liberty under[F]sto  [G7]od   
When it [C]came to [Em]shooting [Am]straight and fast
[F]He was mighty [C]good

From out of the [Am]east a stranger [F]came
A law book [Em]in his [Am]hand a [F]man [G7]    
The kind of a [C]man the west would [F]need
To tame a [Em]troubled [Am]land   
Cause the [Em]point of a [Am]gun was the [Em]only [G7]law   
That [Em]Liberty under[F]sto  [G7]od   
When it [C]came to [Em]shooting [Am]straight and fast
[F]He was mighty [C]good

[Am]Many a [Em]man would [Am]face his [Em]gun and
[Am]Many a [Em]man would [F]fal  [G7]l   
But the [C]man who [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance
[Am]He    [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance
[F]He was the bravest of them [C]all  

The love of a [Am]girl can make a [F]man stay on
When [Em]he should [Am]go stay [F]on   [G7]    
Just trying to [C]build a peaceful [F]life
Where love is [Em]free to [Am]grow   
But the [Em]point of a [Am]gun was the [Em]only [G7]law   
That [Em]Liberty under[F]sto  [G7]od   
When the [C]final [Em]showdown [Am]came to pass
[F]A law book was no [C]good

Alone and [Am]afraid she prayed that [F]he'd return
That [Em]fateful [Am]night awww that [F]night [G7]    
When nothing she [C]said could keep her [F]man  
From going [Em]out to [Am]fight
From the [Em]moment a [Am]girl gets to [Em]be full [G7]grown
The [Em]very first thing she [F]learn[G7]s   
When [C]two men go [Em]out to [Am]face each other [F]only one [Am]returns

[Am]Everyone [Em]heard two [Am]shots ring [Em]out one [Am]shot made [Em]Liberty [F]fal  [G7]l   
The [C]man who [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance [Am]he    [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance
[F]He was the bravest of them [C]all [Am]    
The [C]man who [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance [Am]he    [Em]shot [Am]Liberty [Em]Valance
[F]He was the bravest of them [C]all  


When Liberty Valance rode to town
The womenfolk would hide they'd hide
When Liberty Valance walked around
The men would step aside
Cause the point of a gun was the only law
That Liberty understood
When it came to shooting straight and fast
He was mighty good

From out of the east a stranger came
A law book in his hand a man
The kind of a man the west would need
To tame a troubled land
Cause the point of a gun was the only law
That Liberty understood
When it came to shooting straight and fast
He was mighty good

Many a man would face his gun and
Many a man would fall
But the man who shot Liberty Valance
He shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all

The love of a girl can make a man stay on
When he should go stay on
Just trying to build a peaceful life
Where love is free to grow
But the point of a gun was the only law
That Liberty understood
When the final showdown came to pass
A law book was no good

Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd return
That fateful night awww that night
When nothing she said could keep her man
From going out to fight
From the moment a girl gets to be full grown
The very first thing she learns
When two men go out to face each other only one returns

Everyone heard two shots ring out one shot made Liberty fall
The man who shot Liberty Valance he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all
The man who shot Liberty Valance he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all
