Gene Pitney – Liberty Valance lyrics

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, aww 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
What shot 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
