The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance:
Gene Pitney.
#3 in Australia, #2 in Canada and #4 in USA in 1962.

INTRO: C#m E

#1.
E            C#m             A
When Liberty Valance rode to town 
         G#m        C#m          A    B
the womenfolk would hide, they'd hide.
             E               A
When Liberty Valance walked around 
              G#m   C#m
the men would step aside.
          G#m        C#m         G#m  B
Cause the point of a gun was the only law 
     G#m          A    B
that Liberty understood.
        E       G#m      C#m
When it came to shootin' straight and fast...
A             E
he was mighty good.

#2.
                C#m             A
From out of the East a stranger came, 
           G#m    C#m     A   B
a law book in his hand, a man...
              E                  A
The kind of a man the West would need 
          G#m      C#m
to tame a troubled land.
          G#m        C#m         G#m  B
Cause the point of a gun was the only law 
     G#m          A     B
that Liberty understood.
        E       G#m      C#m
When it came to shootin' straight and fast...
A             E
he was mighty good.

CHORUS:
C#m    G#m       C#m      G#m
Many a man would face his gun and
C#m    G#m       A    B
many a man would fall.
        E       G#m  C#m     G#m
But the man who shot Liberty Valance,
C#m G#m  C#m     G#m 
he  shot Liberty Valance.
A                          E
He was the bravest of them all.

#3.
              C#m             A
The love of a girl can make a man stay on
     G#m       C#m      A   B
when he should go, stay on...
               E                A
Just tryin' to build a peaceful life
              G#m     C#m
where love is free to grow.
        G#m        C#m         G#m  B
But the point of a gun was the only law 
     G#m          A     B
that Liberty understood.
         E     G#m      C#m
When the final showdown came to pass...
A                 E
a law book was no good.

#4.
          Dm                     A#
Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd return 
     Am      Dm                A#    C
that fateful night, awww, that night.
                 F                   A#
When nothin' she said could keep her man 
           Am     Dm
from goin' out to fight.
         Am       Dm           Am      C
From the moment a girl gets to be full-grown,
    Am                   A#     C
the very first thing she learns..
     F          Am     Dm                A#       Dm
when two men go out to face each other...only one returns.

#5.
Dm       Am        Dm         Am       Dm        Am      A#  C
Everyone heard two shots ring out, one shot made Liberty fall.
    F       Am   Dm      Am       Dm  Am    Dm      Am
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he  shot, Liberty Valance..
A#                         F   Dm
he was the bravest of them all.

OUTRO:
    F       Am   Dm      Am       Dm  Am    Dm      Am
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he  shot, Liberty Valance..
A#                         F
he was the bravest of them all. 


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.

I asked you to state what was wrong with the tab..all you had to say
was I forgot to change keys on the last two verses. Instead, you
give me this arrogant, bullshit answer. Grow up. KK.
