Intro:

	(solo fiddle [implies C#m])

	E
	/ / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

	               E              A
	When Liberty Valance rode to town
	         Abm        C#m           A    B
	The womenfolk would hide, they'd hide
	               E              A
	When Liberty Valance walked around
	              Abm   C#m
	The men would step aside

Chorus 1:

	            Abm                   Ebm
	'Cause the point of a gun was the only law
	     Abm            A     B
	That Liberty understood
	         E        Abm     C#m
	When it came to shooting straight and fast
	A [N.C.]      [1: E  2: C#m, to bridge]
	  He was mighty good

Verse 2:

	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

[repeat chorus 1]

Bridge 1:

	C#m    Abm       C#m
	Many a man would face his gun
	    Abm               A    B
	And many a man would fall
	     E      Abm  C#m
	The man who shot Liberty Valance
	E    Abm  C#m
	  He shot Liberty Valance
	A [N.C.]                     (E)
	  He was the bravest of them all

	E  C#m            A        E
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

Verse 3:

	The love of a girl can make a man stay on
	When he should go, stay on
	Just trying to build a peaceful life
	Where love is free to grow

Chorus 3:

	But the point of a gun was the only law
	That Liberty understood
	When the final showdown came to pass
	                   E      C7
	A law book was no good

[key change to F]

Verse 4:

	             F                     Bb
	Alone and afraid, she prayed that he'd
	             Am      Dm             Bb    C
	Return that fateful night, oh that night
	                  F                  Bb
	When nothing she said could keep her man
	           Am      Dm
	From going out to fight

Chorus 4:

	         Am                    Em
	From the moment a girl gets to be full grown
	     Am                    Bb    C
	The very first thing she learns
	      F      Am         Dm
	When two men go out to face each other
	Bb [N.C.]      Dm
	   Only one returns

Bridge 2:

	Dm       Am         Dm
	Everyone heard two shots ring out
	     Am                Bb   C
	The shot made Liberty fall
	     F       Am  Dm
	The man who shot Liberty Valance
	F     Am  Dm
	  He shot Liberty Valance
	Bb [N.C.]                     (Dm)
	   He was the bravest of them all

	Dm           C
	/ / / /  / / / /

Coda:

	     F       Am  Dm
	The man who shot Liberty Valance
	F     Am  Dm
	  He shot Liberty Valance
	Bb [N.C.]                     Dm
	   He was the bravest of them all

	(solo fiddle [Dm] and drums to fade)
