Bob Marley - I Shot the Sherriff - Lyrics

  • I shot the sheriff
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
    I shot the sheriff
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
    Yeah! All around in my home town,
    They're tryin' to track me down;
    They say they want to bring me in guilty
    For the killing of a deputy,
    For the life of a deputy.
    But I say:


    Oh, now, now. Oh!
    (I shot the sheriff.) - the sheriff.
    (But I swear it was in selfdefence.)
    Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
    I say: I shot the sheriff - Oh, Lord! -
    (And they say it is a capital offence.)
    Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!


    Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
    For what, I don't know:
    Every time I plant a seed,
    He said kill it before it grow -
    He said kill them before they grow.
    And so:
    Read it in the news:
    (I shot the sheriff.) Oh, Lord!
    (But I swear it was in self-defence.)
    Where was the deputy? (Oo-oo-oh)
    I say: I shot the sheriff,
    But I swear it was in selfdefence. (Oo-oh) Yeah!


    Freedom came my way one day
    And I started out of town, yeah!
    All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
    Aiming to shoot me down,
    So I shot - I shot - I shot him down and I say:
    If I am guilty I will pay.


    (I shot the sheriff,)
    But I say (But I didn't shoot no deputy),
    I didn't shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
    (I shot the sheriff.) I did!
    But I didn't shoot no deputy. Oh! (Oo-oo-ooh)


    Reflexes had got the better of me
    And what is to be must be:
    Every day the bucket a-go a well,
    One day the bottom a-go drop out,
    One day the bottom a-go drop out.
    I say:


    I - I - I - I shot the sheriff.
    Lord, I didn't shot the deputy. Yeah!
    I - I (shot the sheriff) -
    But I didn't shoot no deputy, yeah! No, yeah!
