Elton John - "Did He Shoot Her Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

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
But if he thinks he's some kind of tough cowboy
It's the twentieth century now
Did he shoot her with his compromise
And he's hurt her than I want to know how

Like a heart attack he can paralyse
Or did he hang her in a noose
On the telephone line

Did he leave his mark right between her eyes
Oh did he shoot that girl
Did he shoot her with a 45
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
But better take him down and dust him honey
He's living in the head of someone else
Did he shoot her

Did he shoot her
I want to hear the truth for myself
