I SHOT THE SHERIFF Bob Marley (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, oo-ooh.) All around in my home town, They tryin' to track me down; They say they want to bring me in guilty For the life of a deputy, For the life of a deputy. But I say, yeah: (I shot the sheriff, But I swear it was in selfdefence.) I swear it was in selfdefence, yea-ea-eah! It was I who shot the sheriff, (And they say it is a) capital offence. (Oo-ooh) Sheriff John Brown always hates me, For what, I don't know: Every time I plant a seed, He say, "Kill them before they grow" - He say, "Kill them before they grow", now. And so, yeah - and so: I shot the sheriff. But I didn't shoot no deputy. (Oh no! Oh!) It was I shot the sheriff, But I (didn't shoot no deputy) - I didn't shoot no deputy. (Oo-ooh) No-no-no-no-no! Freedom came my way one day And I started out of town, yeah! Then all of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown, He was aiming to shoot I down; So I shot, yes, I shot - shot him down and I say, yeah: By-by-by - I shot the sheriff, Love, I didn't shoot no deputy. (oh, no! Oh!) It was I shot the sheriff, But I didn't shoot no deputy. (Oo-ooh) Reflexes had the better of me And what is to be must be: Every day the bucket goes to the well, I say, one day the bottom a-go drop out, One day the bottom will drop out. And so - and so, read it! (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. Oo-ooh.)
