BOB MARLEY – I Shot the Sheriff Lyrics

Share

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!
