Burt Bacharach

"The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"

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 shootin' 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 shootin' straight and fast, he was mighty good
Many a man would face his gun and many a man would fall
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 tryin' 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 at last, a law book was no good

Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd
Return that fateful night, that night
When nothing she said could keep her man
From goin' 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
