The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (/ˈvæləns/) is a 1962 American Western film directed by John Ford, starring John Wayne and James Stewart. The black-and-white film was released by Paramount Pictures. The screenplay by James Warner Bellah and Willis Goldbeck was adapted from a short story written by Dorothy M. Johnson. The supporting cast features Vera Miles, Lee Marvin, Edmond O'Brien, Andy Devine, John Carradine, Woody Strode, Strother Martin, and Lee Van Cleef.

Gene Pitney himself later said: "The song 'Liberty Valance' was written for the movie but for some strange reason never was put in the soundtrack. Because of the prior success with 'Town Without Pity,' I was paid a bundle to record the song, and Burt Bacharach produced it. He wrote the song with Hal David. There was some screw-up between the publishing company, Famous Music, and the parent company, Paramount Pictures

Album: Gene Pitney Greatest Hits. Translations: German. A A. 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.

Because the point of a gun Was the only law that Liberty understood When it came to shooting, 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. Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd Return that fateful night, ah, that night When nothing she said could keep Her man from going 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 shot made Liberty fall The man who shot Liberty Valance He shot Liberty Valance He was the bravest of them all.
