The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance chords  (ver. 1)
Gene Pitney /Burt Bacharach - Hal David

Capo IV

C

             C               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                     Gm
'Cause the point of a gun was the only law
     Em           F    G
That Liberty understood
        C       Em       Am
When it came to shooting straight and fast
       F      C  
He was mighty good

                C               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                     Gm
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     Em        Am
Many a man would face his gun
    Em               F    G
And many a man would fall
    C       Em   Am
The man who shot Liberty Valance
C   Em   Am
He  shot Liberty Valance
F                          C
He was the bravest of them all

    C                         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 trying to build a peaceful life
              Em      Am
Where love is free to grow
        Em                     Gm
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

           C	                   F                      
Alone and afraid, she prayed that he'd
            Em      Am             F    G
Return that fateful night, oh that night 
                 C                   F
When nothing she said could keep her man
           Em     Am
From going out to fight
         Em                    Am
From the moment a girl gets to be full grown
    Em                   F    G
The very first thing she learns
     C       Em        Am
When two men go out to face each other
F          C
Only one returns

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

    C       Em   Am
The man who shot Liberty Valance
C  Em   Am
He shot Liberty Valance
F                          C
He was the bravest of them all
