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
Because 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.
Because 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 to pass,
A lawbook was no good.
 
Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd return
That fateful night, ah, that night.
When nothin' 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
The shots 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.
