The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: by Gene Pitney.

C Am F
When Liberty Valance rode to town
Em Am F G
the womenfolk would hide, they'd hide.
C F
When Liberty Valance walked around
Em Am
the men would step aside.
Em Am Em G
Cause the point of a gun was the only law
Em F G
that Liberty understood.
C Em Am
When it came to shootin' straight and fast...
F C
he was mighty good.

Am F
From out of the East a stranger came,
Em Am F G
a law book in his hand, a man...
C F
The kind of a man the West would need
Em Am
to tame a troubled land.
Em Am Em G
Cause the point of a gun was the only law
Em F G
that Liberty understood.
C Em Am
When it came to shootin' straight and fast...
F C
he was mighty good.

CHORUS:
Am Em Am Em
Many a man would face his gun and
Am Em F G
many a man would fall.
C Em Am Em
But the man who shot Liberty Valance,
Am Em Am Em
he shot Liberty Valance.
F C
He was the bravest of them all.

Am F
The love of a girl can make a man stay on
Em Am F G
when he should go, stay on...
C F
Just tryin' to build a peaceful life
Em Am
where love is free to grow.
Em Am Em G
But the point of a gun was the only law
Em F G
that Liberty understood.
C Em Am
When the final showdown came to pass...
F C
a law book was no good.

Am F
Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd return
Em Am F G
that fateful night, awww, that night.
C F
When nothin' she said could keep her man
Em Am
from goin' out to fight.
Em Am Em G
From the moment a girl gets to be full-grown,
Em F G
the very first thing she learns..
C Em Am F Am
when two men go out to face each other...only one returns.

Am Em A Em Am Em F G
Everyone heard two shots ring out, one shot made Liberty fall.
C Em Am Em Am Em Am Em
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot, Liberty Valance..
F C Am
he was the bravest of them all.
C Em Am Em Am Em Am Em
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot, Liberty Valance..
F C
he was the bravest of them all.
