did he shoot her lyrics – elton john

sling your hook in with him baby
he’s a real sharp-shooter now
if he’s out there hiding in the tall gr*ss
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

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 messing with no two-bit bandit
armed with a couple 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 myself

did he shoot her
did he shoot her
