Sling your hook in with him baby
He's a real sharp-shooter now
If he's out there hiding in the tall grass
                    Eb/Bb Bb       Eb/Bb Bb    Eb/Bb Bb
Tell him I said he    was a  coward

This ain't any old western honey
It's the twentieth century now
But if he thinks he's some kind of tough cowboy
And he's hurt her then I want  to know how

          Eb/Bb Bb   Eb/Bb Bb 
Did he shoot her with his compromise
          Ab6   Ab                 Cm/G G
Like a heart attack he can paralyse
Or did he hang her in a noose
                            Bb/F  F    Gm7    F/A
On the telephone line

Did he shoot her  with a forty five
Did he leave his mark right between her eyes
Oh did he shoot that girl

Bb/F F                      Eb/Bb Bb Eb/Bb Bb
        That used to be mine

Tell him I'm ready any time he chooses
The pay-off for the things, for the things he's done
He ain't messing with no two-bit bandit
Armed with a cou-  ple of guns

If he wants to see it as a two reel movie
He's living in the head of someone else
But better take him down and dust him honey
I want to hear the truth for my-self

           Eb/Bb Bb  Eb/Bb Bb
Did he shoot her
           Eb/Bb Bb
Did he shoot her
