Did He Shoot Her?

Elton John a Bernie Taupin

Text písně

Sling your hook in with him baby
He’s a real sharp-shooter now
If he’s out there hiding in the tall grass
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 kinda tough cowboy
And he’s hurt her then I wanna know how

Did he shoot her
With his compromise
Like a heart attack
He can paralyse
Or did he hang her in a noose
On the telephone line?

Did he shoot her
With a 45
Did he leave his mark
Right between her eyes
Oh did he shoot that girl
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 messin’ with no two-bit bandit
Armed with a couple of guns

If he wants to see it as a two-reel movie
He’s livin’ in the head of someone else
But better take him down and dust him honey
I wanna hear the truth for myself
